This small fold out map of London and suburbs was distributed to soldiers, including class member Lorraine's father-in-law William James Knox, so they wouldn't get lost while on leave in London during the Great War. A precious item of memorabilia long treasured by the Knox family.
Do you take an interest in John Barry’s Anzac Commemoration column in the Ensign each week? Do you have relatives who fought in the final 18 months of the First World War? Are you interested in finding out more about 100th anniversary milestones in the First World War over the months from February 1918 to the end of the war? In 2018 John Barry will continue to explore themes including ‘How WWI began’; ‘The aims of the parties – what were they trying to do?’; ‘ChangingTechnology during the course of the war’; ‘Blockades, Famine and Terrror’; ‘What happened at the end?’ and ‘How did WW1 effectively come to be an 80 year war?’, drawing upon his collection of DVD's and other resources throughout the course.
