Chris Robinson looks at the reasons behind the amalgamation of the Three Towns – Plymouth, Stonehouse and Devonport – in 1914 and examines the impact that the First World War had on the area.
His lavishly illustrated appraisal will highlight Plymouth’s unique position as a base town for Army, Royal Naval, Royal Marine and Royal Naval Air Service personnel. Chris will discuss various medical units that ran over a dozen different hospitals in the area and the many changes to the social and working lives of men and women during and after the Great War.
