The First World War
Published: 11 Nov 18

This year marks 100 years since the end of the First World War. There have been international campaigns of remembrance and a conscious campaign to collect and share the stories of the men and women who served and lived during the Great War. The Lloyd’s Register Foundation Heritage and Education a few years ago launched a campaign to uncover the stories of the 15 men listed on the Lloyd’s Register First World War memorial. Over the summer, Researcher Charlotte Ward delivered a lecture on the First World War including the role Lloyd's Register played in the war and the lives of the 15 men listed on the memorial.
