What were the military and social concerns of the people of our county in the lead-up to War?  And as events began to force a response in every area of National life, how did Essex people react?


Ian Hook, Curator of the Essex Regiment Museum, tells the powerful and moving story of those who went to fight, those who stayed at home - and those who never came back.  This is a second chance to hear Ian's sell-out talk, this time at the museum.

Education room, first floor (full wheelchair access via lift)

Ticket Price

£6 per person, £5 Friends of Chelmsford Museums
