The Remembered Podcast: Combat Stress
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 four, we speak to Walter Busuttil, Medical Director at Combat Stress, a charity founded in 1919, which helps former servicemen and women deal with trauma-related mental health problems such as anxiety, depression and post-traumatic stress.
A big thank you to Walter for travelling in to speak with us and sharing what he and Combat Stress do.
Check out their website to find out more about what Combat Stress does, what post-traumatic stress is and how you can support them.
This week we’re sharing our first listener story, from Mark Jackson, whose Great-Grandfather fought in Gallipoli in 1915.
If you would like to send us a story about a relative in the First World War, please email us firstname.lastname@example.org. We’re looking for approximately 200-300 word stories or 2-3 minute recordings.
Next week we’ll be speaking to our colleague Tom Lacey, about his family’s recently discovered First World War story.
