After the First World War, servicemen returned home physically altered, and with permanently scarred senses, bodies and minds. In the public sphere, charities and government ministries dealt with their economic and medical needs with varying degrees of success; and in the privacy of homes, families and friends endured their loved one’s pain, disorientation, and distress. The Disability History Series will commemorate these living memorials to the aftermath of war in 2018.
