Join us for an exclusive evening with Elise Edmonds, curator of the exhibition Quick March! which focuses on the generation who were born between 1900 and the outbreak of war in 1914. They would see two world wars in their lifetime. As children, they farewelled fathers, uncles and older brothers, as men they began to enlist and depart on troopships heading to the Middle East and Europe. As adults, this generation was confronted with World War II, with many enlisting as servicemen and women.
Elise Edmonds is a senior curator who has worked on several exhibitions highlighting the Library's nationally significant First World War collections.
Bookings essential. Includes refreshments.
