Among the sweep of the Archive's collections, we hold documents, records, pictures and maps that relate to the First World War.

We are fortunate in that not only do we hold collections specific to experiences of the War, but also our University College records and many of our business collections cover the period. These offer an unparalleled insight into the life and work of those on the Home Front, as well as those facing danger and death on the Western and Eastern Fronts and the Middle East

This exhibition offers just a small sample from these collections.
