A new exhibition commemorating 100 years since the start of the First World War, is being set up by volunteers from the University's Faculty of Health and Social Care Historical Society (FHSC).

The First World War: Returning Home, will explore what life was like for invalided soldiers returning home to Cheshire and will look at medical advances which filtered back from the Front, the lives and work of volunteer nurses, social welfare and the psychological effects of war as well as aspects of home life including nutrition (in conjunction with the Womens' Institute) and rural life.

The exhibition will be opening in the autumn as part of the FHSC Riverside Museum and will be run by volunteers from the FHSC Historical Society and wider community.

There is also a programme of events to complement the exhibition, for more information visit: www.chester.ac.uk/hsc/historical-society.

We'd be very interested to hear from anyone who has any information on what life was like in Cheshire during the First World War. Please contact Fiona Roberts on 01244 511078 or email: f.roberts@chester.ac.uk.
