Munitions Worker Kate Beckett of Woodchester, working at TH & J Daniels in 1918

In 2017 the Museum will be turning its attention to the Home Front - we will be looking at reserved occupations, the Volunteer Force, the Voluntary Aid Detachment and more.

As ever, we are hoping to work with local history societies and other interested parties to tell these stories - if you would like to contribute please contact us
