The heroic role played by women during WW1 in Cambridge, especially those who remain unnamed, is relatively little known. They were highly active with ‘hands-on’ help not only in making things for the war effort, but also in administering to the injured, in boosting the morale of those fighting in Europe, in supporting refugees and in taking on ‘men’s work’ as well as carrying on with their own. The photographic exhibition aims to illuminate aspects of their vital contribution, including material researched from a range of archives and photographs sent in by local residents.
This exhibition is part of a Heritage Lottery Funded project for Great St Mary’s, delivered by HistoryNeedsYou. The exhibition is curated by Dr Julie Bounford, with assistance from Caroline Biggs, Simon Cross and Trevor Bounford. @windowwar #WindowOnTheWar
