Home Front

There will be a series of special events in 2018 which will commemorate the Herefordshire Home Front campaign. Events will be hosted at the cathedral and other venues in Herefordshire 

The men and women of Herefordshire made a huge contribution to the war effort,from the brave young men recruited into the Herefordshire Regiment – among them Allan Leonard Lewis who was awarded the Victoria Cross- to the Canary Girls who filled munition shells at the Rotherwas Munitions Factory, and the farmers who provided food for the country and the Front, as well as horses for the movement of soldiers and supplies.
