Countdown to Peace – an exhibition for WW1

2 days until Armistice

The cost of war

Today we feature: Radley College Chapel Offertory for Lent Term 1916. Charitable giving remained constant throughout WW1 but the effect of the War can be seen in the recipients: Armenian Refugees – fleeing from the genocide in Turkey; charities based at the Front – the YMCA and the Public Schools Hospital; and Prisoners of War, which included several Old Radleians such as HLC Aked who took part in the debate on 2 October 1914, when the motion was ‘This House believes that war is not beneficial to the nation.’
