The Unremembered: World War One’s Army of Workers
The Unremembered is a national campaign to remember World War One’s army of workers – the Labour Corps. Many died, yet today their contribution and sacrifice is rarely acknowledged. Historical researchers have been commissioned to unearth unknown local heritage by researching local Labour Corps history across the UK. Groups can engage with this local heritage to discover and share these stories, plan their own commemorative events, and remember them 100 years on from the end of the conflict.
Free resources and an expenses scheme are available. Find out more at big-ideas.org/project/the-unremembered
Trailblazers: World War One’s Inspirational Women
Trailblazers encourages young people to explore the incredible lives of women from the First World War, to discover Trailblazing women in your locality, and to develop as future Trailblazers. Schools and community groups across the country can research a contemporary Trailblazer in your local community and host an exhibition celebrating the incredible achievements of women today.
