British WW1 stories

Find out about the impact of the Great War on Britain from a local perspective from the BBC website at http://www.bbc.co.uk/ww1/ww1-at-home/find-locations/. Enter a community name or postal code and find stories for it and neighbouring communities. Did you know that pubs in Carlisle were nationalized? I couldn't get some of the A/V material to play but the text is interesting.

John - great link and I did know about the nationalization of the pubs as that is only 30 miles from where I grew up. Lots of talk during WWI about changing the pub hours because of the munitions workers and that still affected the opening times up through the 1970s I think. I did get the audio links to work fine today.
