As you may or may not know much of my research work is undertaken in the Outer Hebrides – miles away from Cheltenham! One small sideline I have become interested in over the last few years has been the ways in which various communities memorialise their war dead. And one of the pictures shown here is of me pointing out where my interest lies! I’m not going to say what I think this shows as that is what our applicants will be talking about on Thursday.
Memorialisation is a bit of a theme here at UoG. In recent years we have had one PhD and one MA by research on the topic.
