The ‘Writing Home’ project

‘Writing Home’ commemorates the First World War through the real life story of Private Arthur Webb, who joined the Machine Gun Corps in 1914 and was killed just ten days before the end of the war, aged 20.

Using Arthur’s personal belongings and letters sent home from the front to his sister, Winnie, alongside the Geffrye Museum’s collections and 1910 period room, the project explores the stories of those left behind and considers the impact of the First World War on everyday life.
