Introducing the work of the Worcestershire World War 100’s final National Lottery Heritage Funded project, the Redditch Military Service Tribunal project, which has worked with volunteers to transcribe the registers of the local Redditch Tribunal and research the lives of the men who applied. This webinar will start with a short talk from Professor John Peters, Director of Learning, Teaching & Scholarship at Newman University, Birmingham about the Military Service Tribunals which allowed exemptions from conscription during World War I.

We will then introduce our project and the resources which will be available online and one of our volunteers will give a short talk about their experience of the project. There will also be time for some questions at the end.
