The British Army 1939-45 – online talk

A talk by Mike Cooper

Enjoy this talk from the comfort of your own home, whilst still being able to contribute fully to the discussion afterwards. 

The Second World War mobilised British society in a way no other had and this was reflected in the changing composition of the Army. The Army also adapted to different conditions, environments and technology.  Discover how the Army was structured, recruited and supported and how this changed during the War. What “being in the Army” meant could vary enormously from being a pay clerk in Manchester, to a tank crewman in Rangoon. A must for anyone with ancestors who fought in the war.
