Sex, Violence & Alcohol: after-effects of WW1
Modern charities working with ex-service personnel have demonstrated that the stress of war can change men forever, and also that it can take years for those concerned to admit they have a problem, while their families have to cope with their challenging or even abusive behaviour.
This was also true for some men after the First World War. This talk will discuss three case studies in detail, but also explore the wartime experiences which could lead to long-term difficulties for men – and their families.
This talk is free to members of Berkshire Family History Society and we request a donation of £3 from non-members.
