About this Event

In WW1, the Government hardly even provided the bare necessities of life for men on active service. As early as September 1914, groups (of mainly women) were springing up all over the country to find ways to provide the extras that would make lives a little more tolerable for the men who had volunteered. Sep up as private and church organisations, to being with, within months many came under the umbrella organisation of the Red Cross. This talk is based on the records and ephemera of one such group, which were saved by a family and which have survived into the present day.

It would be of great help to us, if we could receive any questions that you might have, by email, in advance of the talk. Please send them to the Oldham Branch email address oldham_webmaster@mlfhs.org.uk.

There is also the option to book for the talk through the MLFHS website, Oldham Branch, 'Meetings' Page.
