In Commemoration of the Men of Emsworth who served in WW1.
This exhibition by the late Bob Duncan, his daughter Jane and Richard Sanderson tells the stories of the men of Emsworth who served in so many different locations around the world during the Great War of 1914 – 1918. Local men were lost within a month of the start of the conflict right through to within three days of it ending and this display shows the history of the war from the perspective of the people of Emsworth. It also records the support given to the fighting forces by horses, mules, dogs and pigeons.
In addition the display illustrates the home conditions for the average working family – very few had gas or electricity, cooking was often done on a coal-fired range and the toilet was outside.
