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.
Total War looks at the impact of the First World War on economic resources and how industry, agriculture, and civilian labour were all channeled into the war effort.
By placing these exhibitions in public places we will bring the story of the Great War to you.
March and District Museum is open 10.30 am – 3.30 pm on Wednesday and Saturday.
