In Memory Of The Mighty Men Of Mymms

When the headmaster of Welham Green Boys' School, Benjamin Mallett, heard that many of his former pupils had died during the 1914-1918 Great War, he honoured them with the title the Mighty Men of Mymms. 100 years later their stories are told.

Life on the Homefront in Hertfordshire 

The Armistice Edition 


A video has been produced about life in Hertfordshire as the country prepared for and took part in WWI. It's was produced by the Lieutenancy of Hertfordshire in August 2018. Those who created the video introduce it as follows:
"Hertfordshire became one of the great staging areas for troops going to France in WW1. Made from photographs supplied by local museums and the public, the camera looks deeply into the unsung heroes of the Home Front, at home and at work. It offers a fresh and surprisingly local view of a story that is now retold on television on a wider canvass. Interlaced with original recordings and songs of the period, the film makes compulsive viewing, often haunting, ultimately uplifting and forever Hertfordshire."
