    The video documents a 'live art' session that took place at Golden Square, Warrington on 8 and 9 May 2015. The event was part of My Subject is War - a visual arts project exploring Warrington's role in the First World War. During the session I was visited by Harry Williams, who brought along his fathers diary written during his time on the front line. The diary and other photos and artefacts provided by Bewsey Local History Group were used in the research stages of the project. All illustrations were hand-drawn onto the glass using Posca pens. The project has been commissioned by Culture Warrington and Warrington Borough Council and is part of the First World War Centenary programme in Warrington. The work is supported using public funding from the National Lottery through Arts Council England.

        Falmouth and the Great War is a film documentary about the men who went to war from Falmouth. Tracing the war from its initial stages to the armistice the film explains the impact the war had on the town and how the town was represented in the air, on land and at sea. Directed by John Ault and presented by Louis Allen filming took place in Belgium, France, London and Cornwall: including the Somme and Ypres as well as less well known battles. The film indentifies the youngest from Falmouth to die in the conflict (John Winnan, 17), the worst day for the town when many from the town were torpedoed in the Aegean Sea on the way to the Dardanelles campaign as well as a spy story based in the town itself. The film includes interviews from notable First World War and naval historians. Professor Eric Grove (Liverpool Hope), Professor Jerry de Groot (St, Andrews), Professors Richard Toye and Philip Payton (University of Exeter) as well as Hugo White (Official historian of the Duke of Cornwall's Light Infantry) all contribute to this local history film project. The film was produced by students based at the Penryn campus of the University of Exeter and Falmouth University combining the historical skills from Exeter's history department and Falmouth's film department. Finances were raised through a Crowdfunder project and from other sources, such as the University of Exeter and Falmouth Town Council. The Commonwealth War Graves Commission also kindly allowed filming at a number of offical war cemeteries across the continent. The premiere took place in Falmouth at the Poly Cinema in January 2015.

                  In addressing the topic 'Gallipoli and Anzac after 100 Years: Lessons and the Prospects for Peace Today', Anne Noonan discusses Australia's WW1 casualties and the disparities in the medical treatment provided both abroad and at home. Anne devotes the greater part of her address to discussing changes in the diagnosis of psychological trauma, from the ill-defined notion of 'shell shock', often attributed to a lack of moral fibre, to the notion of combat stress reaction or PTSD in later wars. Anne cites Siegfried Sassoon to express the essence of her message: "In the name of civilisation these soldiers had been martyred and it remained for civilisation to prove that their martyrdom wasn't a dirty swindle". For Anne, despite the passing of 100 years, that proof has never materialised.

                    In welcoming people to the public forum on 'Gallipoli and Anzac after 100 Years: Lessons and the Prospects for Peace Today', Jon Atkins outlines the genesis of the Gallipoli Centenary Peace Campaign and briefly describes its objectives and elements of its program of activities. He also responds to the attempt to stop the public forum being held in April on the spurious grounds that such an event would be "disrespectful" to our war dead. On the contrary, he argues that asking the hard questions about war is absolutely compatible with genuine remembrance.
