Join Carl Watts, Learning Officer at The Green Howards Museum, for a fascinating insight into the role of The Green Howards regiment during the First World War.
65,000 men served in the Yorkshire Regiment (The Green Howards) during the First World War. From 1914 to 1919 they fought in Belgium, France, Turkey, Italy and North Russia. By the end of the war 8,967 had been killed and 24,000 wounded – 12 men who served in the regiment had been awarded the armed forces highest award for gallantry – the Victoria Cross. Carl Watts of The Green Howards Museum will outline the experiences of those who fought and fell or served and survived during this turning point in world history.
