The First World War affected everyone. It was not just soldiers in the trenches who took part in the war. It was their families, their children and their wives. In Norfolk it really was ‘everybody’s war.’

This exhibition tells what life was like for people in Norfolk during the First World War. See how farmers kept feeding the nation, find out how women and children contributed to the war effort and discover what spy mania was all about.
