In this section, we hope to share with you stories of Dorset and the local population during the Great War. If you have a family story you would like to share, please do get in touch!
Emily Dunning was a young girl who lived in Longham, then in Wareham during the war. Her wartime experiences were recorded in 1972-74 and generously shared with us by her family. In addition to this, Emily collected a fantastic group of photographs, mainly of military friends she made whilst they were stationed in Dorset.
