THE STRONG & HILL FAMILY IN THE GREAT WAR 

This project goes back to 1998, when a Wolverhampton history teacher, Rob Hatch becomes the keeper of Arthur Strong's personal belongings. Notable Arthur's First World War uniform and medals. Local media covered the story at the time and over 10 years later Arthur's belongings are now in my possession. The information has been pieced together to form the path that the 4 individuals had during the war and the years after.
