When the Great War began, Alice Packard was a fifty-seven year old tenant farmer's wife in the village of Shotley. From the appearance of casualties at Shotley Barracks in early August 1914, following the sinking of HMS Amphion off the Suffolk coast, to the surrender of German U-boats on the River Stour in November 1918, the war sporadically intruded upon - yet rarely overwhelmed - Alice's everyday life. This talk uses her wartime diaries to explore the various ways that she experienced the Great War, and to challenge entrenched stereotypes about the 'home front'.
