First World War story time sessions

These are specially commissioned stories that will be about Fort Nelson during the First World War. The Author is the fabulous story teller Janet Goring and she has used George Weston’s letters home to inspire her. George Weston was a young man of 18 who joined up in 1914 and began his training here at Fort Nelson. The stories will unfold as we explore the fort, looking for exciting things that have been left behind by the story characters.
