Downside and the War

The Monastery Archives at Downside hold a plethora of information and items which relate to the Great War. Much of it comes from the archives of the members of the monastic community who served as chaplains to the forces. We also have a lot of material in our CCF collections, which were brought back from the front and donated by Old Gregorians. 

As the time of remembrance is upon us, archive staff felt it an opportune time to share some of these items. Through the library and archive Flickr gallery, we can show you some of the more interesting parts of the incredible collections here. To view the album click here. The gallery will be continually added to, so check back to see if you have missed anything.
