An exhibition of University Senate, Convocation, staff and students involved in the Great War.
Through photos and stories straight from the pens of our University men and women come narratives of grief and grit even beyond the battlefields. Recognise these individuals not merely for their wartime service, but for the lives they touched around them. They were friends to some, enemies to others; they were healers, trainers, researchers and soldiers; they were family and they were strangers.
They were the humans of war such that the world had never seen.
