From Plumstead to Palestine – Some Cockney War Stories
The size and story of London’s contribution in the Great War fades into the pages of history somewhat. This presentation charts the story of its regiments, the people of London and the city’s sacrifices.

Shortly after the end of the First World War, the most popular London newspaper of the time, The Evening News, asked readers to send in their stories. Of the countless tales received, the newspaper selected 500 and compiled them into a book that is at once both amusing and poignant. Using this publication to weave the narrative of the Great War, Clive Harris will present the argument that the capital's contribution equates to that of a country as opposed to a city in both size, achievement and loss.
