Description: In this year which marks the centenary of end of the First World War, nine school (GCSE and A-Level) and university students took part in a graphic novel workshop at The National Archives, led by author-illustrator Carol Adlam. Drawing on the extensive research carried out by staff of The National Archives over the last four years into the First World War, Adlam used a wide variety of original records—including war diaries, attestation files, pension records, photographs and maps—to create the nine interlinked narratives that comprise the script for the graphic novel ‘Armistice & Legacy’. The striking individual histories that emerged were then illustrated by the nine students in the course of a week-long illustration workshop led by Adlam. From the voyage of Indian Cavalrymen sailing from Bombay to Marseilles, to the machinations of the Pigeon Service, students interpreted these original stories in their own unique style.
