Description

Norfolk in the Great War explores the story of the county of Norfolk, its military forces and the impact of the war on local people through a fascinating selection of over 200 photographs, many of them previously unpublished, from the archive of Neil R. Storey, one of the county’s foremost military and social historians. Accompanied by well-researched and informative captions, the images and stories from across the county include: the Norfolk Regiment, Kitchener’s Army, Territorial battalions, Yeomanry, military cyclists, Zeppelin air raids, bombardments, war hospitals and wartime occasions, which combine to create an evocative and moving portrait of our county during the First World War. There will be stories and images to interest both those new to the subject and those who know Norfolk and its history well.
