1918. Peace. Really?

Thursday 1st November

From 6.30pm
Hampton Wick Library

Hosted by the Friends of Hampton Wick Library.

Alison Merrington’s research into the names on our war memorial and life in Hampton Wick generally during WW1 bring us to the long-awaited armistice of 1918. At last the machine guns fell silent over the trenches. Alison will be describing what this meant for the men of Hampton Wick who were out there on the front line and to their families back home.

Her talk will also describe what was going on here in the local area at that time. With riots and revolution in the air it seems things were far from peaceful in Hampton Wick.
