MALVERN IN THE GREAT WAR: 1914 booklet and 1915 booklet ~ £4.00p each (new price)
Malvern Museum has published two booklets so far to commemorate the Great War as it affected Malvern. They are based on extracts and articles from the local newspapers of the time to explore how life changed in a small rural town after the outbreak of war. The 1914 edition includes the impact of the arrival of hundreds of Belgian refugees, the experiences of the new army recruits and their families, the excitement, hysteria and insecurities felt by everyone and the many fundraising schemes that appealed to the people of Malvern.
The 1915 booklet considers the impact of the Zeppelin threat, the military camps on the Commons for over 3000 new recruits, munitions, the Battle of Gallipoli and so much more.
A third booklet will be published in 2018, covering the remaining war years, with a little look at how the community commemorated the fallen in the years that followed.
The booklets offer a unique insight into Home Front conditions.
Price: £4.00 (£5.50 to include P&P)
Available from Malvern Museum, open daily from 10.30 to 5.00 until the end of October or by post
