103 Foresters; Mutinies and death sentences in the local regiment 1914-18

Since the start of 2014 People’s Histreh have been working on an extensive research project looking into the cases of the 103 Sherwood Foresters who were sentenced to death on mutiny charges during World War One.

Peoples’s Histreh aim to produce a series of pamphlets, commencing with an introduction and contextualisation, followed by a review of a soldier sentenced to death on the Western Front on February 5th 1915.

The pamphlets will be launched on Saturday 7th February 2015 between 2:00 and 4:00pm in Room A18/19 in the Lenton Grove building of the Department of History at the University of Nottingham where there will also be talks, discussions and tea-and-biscuits.

This is a free event. There is free car parking on the University campus at weekends and the venue is wheelchair accessible.
