This is the story of the 30,490 men that left Dundee to fight in the First World War and of the people left at home.
Home Front Exhibition
The launch of the Home Front Banner exhibition took place at Lochee Library this morning. There was a large turnout for the event including local history enthusiasts, school children and people from the local community.
Matthew Jarron (museum curator at the University of Dundee) who, along with Linda Nicoll (a volunteer at Dundee City Archives) put together the information and images for the twelve banners, gave a short introduction with Linda and Dr. Billy Kenefick giving more information about various aspects of life in Dundee during the First World War.
The exhibition will be on display in Lochee library until 29th August and will then tour all Dundee libraries.
