The Remembered Podcast: Away From The Western Front
The Remembered Podcast is an opportunity to explore the First World War, and its continuing impact today, in more depth.
Each week, we’ll be chatting to beneficiaries of the There But Not There project, as well as other people who are working to commemorate the war in different ways. The First World War was fought on many fronts and by many different races and we want to give a platform to those different voices, while raising awareness of the There But Not There project.
As always, you can support There But Not There by purchasing one of our Tommies.
In episode six, we’re talking to Robin Clutterbuck from Away From The Western Front, a project which aims to raise awareness of the campaigns which took place outside of the better known theatres of war in France and Belgium.
A big thank you to Robin for coming to speak to us with us and sharing what Away From the Western Front aims to do.
Check out their website to find out more about what they do and how you can get involved. You can also find them on Twitter for regular updates.
This week we’re sharing our first listener story, from Tina Burton, whose husband discovered that she had a cousin who had fought and died in the First World War.
If you would like to send us a story about a relative in the First World War, please email us email@example.com. We’re looking for approximately 200-300 word stories or 2-3 minute recordings.
Next week we’ll be speaking to author and historian Stephen Bourne, about the experience of the black community and gay men in the war, based on his books Black Poppies and Fighting Proud.
