The First World War affected every town and village in the land. This 90 minute walk starting at Windsor and Eton Riverside station, will explore how the Great War affected people living in Windsor, from the ordinary people to the Royal family in the castle.
As a military town Windsor sent men to fight from the very start with some of the proudest regiments in the British Army. But the shop workers and postmen of Windsor also answered Lord Kitchener’s appeal and joined the local county regiments. They served in France and Flanders, in all corners of the British Empire, at sea and in the air.
You will hear their stories as well as tales of Zeppelins, Victoria Crosses, and rugged men from the wilds of Canada.
This walk is part of the Windsor Spring Festival. To buy tickets visit http://www.windsorfestival.com/index.php/tickets/how-to-buy-tickets
