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.
‘Greetings from the Western Front: The British Empire in our Region’ explores the role of British troops on the Western Front, the relationship between British soldiers and the local population in France, and how the British presence has been remembered.
By placing these exhibitions in public places we will bring the story of the Great War to you.
