BRISTOL’S GREAT WAR STORIES
Where did men queue up to join the army in 1914?
Where did a man get away with the murder of his wife?
Where did a conscientious objector put the army on trial?
And where were some of the world’s first female police officers trained?
The Great War Stories interactive map app, specially commissioned as part of the Bristol 2014 First World War centenary programme, pinpoints the locations of over 100 fascinating stories associated with the war in Bristol, including urban myths and wild rumours, as well as a wealth of facts and figures.
Simply click on a pin to open up the story text.
There are also suggested walking routes to connect some of the locations and a link to information on all of the upcoming events taking place in Bristol to mark the war’s centenary.
Thanks to the support of the Heritage Lottery Fund, the map app is provided free of charge.
