We are pleased to announce that we are currently producing a new documentary film in association with the Staffordshire Regiment Museum which will commemorate the bravery of Staffordshire soldiers in a pivotal battle of World War One.
The Museum have secured Heritage Lottery funding to celebrate the men of the 137th Staffordshire Brigade who broke the German Hindenburg Line at the Battle of the St Quentin Canal on 29th September 1918. Prime Minister David Lloyd George called the battle “the greatest chapter in Britain’s military history”. We are particularly enthusiastic about this project as we have partnered up with the museum to produce both, an inspiring documentary film, and a website to support this commemorative exhibition.
On 29th September 1918 men from Wolverhampton, Walsall, Burton and Staffordshire stormed the German line in Northern France, smashing through the Hindenburg Line – which was previously though impregnable. Germany signed the armistice to end the Great War 43-days later on 11th November, which brought to an end four years of brutal warfare.
Designed to mark the Centenary of the First World War, the project will enable local people in Staffordshire to come together to preserve the memories and heritage of the people who lived through it. To see how you can get involved click here!
On November 11th the country will come together to remember the 100th anniversary of the armistice which ended the Great War. Remembering Staffordshire’s role in World War One and our local heritage is extremely important to us at Inspired, so there was no question that we were eager to be involved in this commemorative project. We have continuously celebrated Staffordshire’s involvement during the Great War within our productions, and you can read all about our other commemorative war projects in our blog.
You can see the exhibition at The Staffordshire Regiment Museum in Lichfield throughout 2018 and until March 2019. We hope you enjoy it as much as we have!
