An exhibition by Eastside Community Heritage and Middlesex University of a previously unexplored history of the Middlesex Regiment’s illustrious contribution to the First World War. Through the tracing of their descendants, the stories of the Middlesex Regiment’s brave Black and Asian soldiers reveal an alternative narrative of the First World War.
One example of these brave soldiers is Sam Manning from Trinidad. He travelled to London to fight for Britain during WW1; later finding success as an entertainer in New York. See Sam Manning in action in this clip of Quarry Road (external link).
Funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
Open Wednesday to Sunday 1 - 5pm
