This exhibition is part of the ‘Great War – Between the Lines’ project, which aims to raise awareness of the Great War and its Centenary commemorations. Partners from across Northern France,Belgium and the UK have chosen 6 themes through which to explore their shared experience of the Great War. The themes chosen cover music, family, British troops on the Western Front, total war, hidden stories and military logistics.
‘Behind the Lines’ explores the military logistics which were required to transport troops and supplies, to evacuate the wounded, and maintain lines of communications between Head Quarters and the front line.
By placing these exhibitions in public places we will bring the story of the Great War to you.
