Since the start of 2014, we have been working on an extensive research project, looking into the cases of the 103 Sherwood Foresters who were sentenced to death or sentenced on mutiny charges during World War One.
We will launch the first two issues in a series of pamphlets, the first introducing and contextualising the project, the second looking into the case of a soldier sentenced to death on the Western Front on February 5th, 1915.
Free parking on the campus on weekends.
Free event (donations welcome), venue wheelchair accessible.
Many thanks to the UoN’s Department of History for hosting the event!
