Disabled British Army Great War veterans across the empire, 1918-1939

  • The National Archives Bessant Drive Kew, England, TW9 4DU United Kingdom (map)

Over one million British men were disabled by disease or injury during the First World War. The post-war experiences of those who returned to Britain have been well documented in historiography – but what about those disabled British Army veterans who did not return to Britain? Dr Michael Robinson will delve into The National Archives’ pension records and give us an insight into what happened to veterans who resided outside of Britain, providing us with a fresh understanding of war-induced disability in the aftermath of war.
