Our World War 1 project, which will run for four years, will tell Norfolk’s unique story, particularly in relation to the impact of the war at home, its impact on families, on the civilian population, on the work of women, the struggle for the vote, the role of workers and radical politics, of conscientious objectors, of other support services like the Red Cross and Forage Corps and the implications of war on local agriculture and industry.

Commemoration and telling good human stories are key to our project

If you have any Norfolk in World War 1 stories or information that we could include on this page please email norfolkinworldwar1@gmail.com

Stories, information and comments are given at the discretion of the contributor and information given within these (name etc.) will be accessible to other visitors to the blog. 

Please keep checking back.

  1. Do you have any stories about Australian soldiers in Lakenham Hospital during World War 1? My grandfather was there for a while, Vincent Roy Lennon. Would be nice if there was some anecdotes about people visiting or what the staff were like,
    Thank you
