The World at War
Gill and Matthew with Jasdeep Singh of the National Army Museum in Woking Mosque. We were guests at the opening of the new peace garden, created in the old burial ground for Muslim soldiers of WW1. Our research and contacts in Pakistan linked the peace garden with the family of one of the soldiers in Pakistan. Our research was also used to make the BBC documentary 'Britain's Muslim Soldiers', broadcast in January 2016.
Whether you are a museum, school, education institution, history festival organiser, heritage organisation or historic site, HistoryNeedsYou will enable you to commemorate The Great War and all who took part, so you can effectively engage with as many people as possible.
