This talk will focus on an aspect of Dr Michael Reeve’s PhD research into the experience of northern coastal towns and cities under bombardment during the First World War.
Looking in detail at ordinary communities in Hull during the conflict, the talk will explore how the ‘home front’ was policed by the voluntary Special Constabulary and, in a scheme possibly unique to the city, ‘night patrols’, which were staffed by men from working-class districts with an interest in spotting enemy aircraft and warning their neighbours of approaching danger.
