Munition Workers in World War One Workshop

The First World War was the first global conflict fought by industrialised nations. Each side was dependent upon a ready supply of munitions. Who were the people who worked in these factories and what did they do to support the men at the front?

In this workshop, we will look at where the munitions factories were and what people who worked in them did. We will consider working conditions and experiences, including the accidents which occurred, and what records may be available and where to find them.

Pre-booking is required because places are limited. Bookings close one day before the event.

Please note this is a face-to-face workshop, held in The Centre for Heritage and Family History in Reading.  This will be repeated as an online workshop in quarter four.
