Law, Order and Life with DORA in the Great War with Clive Potter.

This talk will take a look at life on the Home Front during the Great War. As men left homes and jobs to join the forces those left behind, most of whom were women, had to take their places. There were shortages of everything on top of a huge demand to supply the armed forces. The Government introduced the Defence of the Realm Act (DORA) which allowed for draconian measures. The Great War changed life in Britain forever.

Doors open at 7p.m. for a 7:30 p.m. start.
