We are grateful to pupil Joshua, who has kindly shared his great grandfather’s papers for enrolment in the first World War. As Year 9 History students consider the nature of fighting in the First World War, these papers add a very personal touch to our knowledge and understanding of this first major conflict of modern times. Joshua explains that, despite being a Yorkshireman, his relation for some reason chose to enlist in the Lincolnshire Regiment.
Thank you Joshua, for sharing your great grandfather’s papers for enrolment!
