Welcome to the Devil’s Porridge Museum Podcast!
Through conversations and interviews, our volunteers and other from the local community will be sharing their personal stories and memories with The Devil’s Porridge Podcast team.
In this weeks podcast we talked to David Carter about the Royal Fusiliers in World War One. David was meant to do a talk at the Museum about this subject in August which unfortunately had to be cancelled due to COVID-19.
One regiment which over the course of the war recruited thousands of men was the Royal Fusiliers. The talk will look at the way in which volunteers from the Empire became involved in different battalions. Some battalions were formed which took account of the knowledge of the volunteers, other men were incorporated into battalions comprised of British volunteers. Their experiences varied, from the time given for initial training, to where they were posted and what they had to do.
