Devon Voices 1914-1918: Home Front Stories

Royal Albert Memorial Museum and Art Gallery

15 September 2018 – 6 January 2019

Explore Devon’s unique First World War history and discover the people who were part of it.

Armistice signed! Plymouth, November 11th 1918

People in Devon experienced the First World War in many different ways. Through their own words, meet men, women and children who lived and worked in the county, or found themselves here as a consequence of the war.

A farmer, a nurse, an entertainer, a young sailor and a policeman are just some of the people featured, and their words tell of lives carried on through turbulent times.

Marking the centenary of the First World War Armistice, this exhibition features archive material, images and objects from Devon Archives, the West Country Studies Library, Royal Albert Memorial Museum, Imperial War Museum, local organisations and family collections.
