In October, we return to World War 1 with a lecture from historian Tim Lynch on the subject of life on the Home Front. The First World War created an entirely new sphere of war – the Home Front. Every single person in the country was affected in some way by the experience. In this talk Tim will look at some of the bits of history that have been overlooked including a Hull man’s plans for a “Kamikaze” unit to tackle Zeppelins, the danger of transvestite spies, the importance of cocaine, lipstick, knickers and elephants, and why feeding ducks could mean a six month jail sentence.
Western Front Association Members and non-members are equally welcome. We ask for a modest £4 donation on the door. Any new visitors will be assured of an welcoming and friendly atmosphere among a group of like-minded enthusiasts.
