Surrey in the Great War: A county remembers

 One hundred years ago, Surrey was playing its part in the first global war between modern industrial nations. It was a conflict which called for previously unthinkable sacrifices by the county's people, young and old, rich and poor.

How did Surrey respond?

Surrey heritage, through its four year Heritage Lottery Fund - supported project
'Surrey in the Great War: A County remembers' calls you to enlist to help investigate this question.

We are hosting two events to showcase opportunities to get involved in Surrey in the Great War. Highlights will include talks and displays about what current researchers and volunteers have been doing, information on the project itself, and an insight into how exciting Great War discoveries will be preserved on our dedicated website. Find out about our newspaper indexing project, local Great War research topics, digitising Great War ephemera and much more.

West Surrey: 19th September 2015. 10.30am - 2.30pm at Surrey History Centre, Goldsworth Road, Woking GU21 6ND

Free refreshments will be offered.
