Event Details

This summer UCL's Lunch Hour Lectures go 'on tour' to The Guardian for a short series marking the centenary of the start of World War One.

Sex and the Somme

Dr Clare Makepeace, UCL History

Tommies queued in their hundreds to visit brothels in the First World War. Dr Clare Makepeace explores this little-discussed aspect of the war. She uncovers soldiers' reasons for visiting brothels, their reactions to them and the prostitutes, and how they dealt with the potential consequences: venereal disease. The findings give us fresh insight into what it meant to be a British man at war.
