Oral History specialist Beverley Jones shares images and stories from the Women's United Total Abstinence Council (WUTAC) visitors' books. These slim volumes contain poems, sketches and messages which offer a fascinating insight into the servicemen who passed through Peterborough's East Station on their way to and from the front in 1916 and 1917.
