Pip, Squeak and Wilfred


On 28 June 1914, Archduke Ferdinand was assassinated in Sarajevo
… and the world went to war.

On 28 June 2014 we brought you:

Pip, Squeak and Wilfred — the record legacy of 1914-1918

 at the Marlborough School, Woodstock, OX20 1LP

Talks covered the medals and medal cards, the ongoing discovery of (and identification of) memorabilia, and a plethora of other aspects of the record legacy from the period. There were speakers from the National Archives as well as from academia and the family history world.



The day was sponsored by both Oxfordshire FHS and
the Federation of Family History Societies.

The day’s programme is now available.

When the dust has settled, we will collect links from the speakers and the attendees and make them available here. Links concerning any aspect of the WWI period can be submitted either by commenting below or by email to psw@ofhs.org.uk

 Medal images above are from the Europeana 1914-1918 collection:  http://www.europeana1914-1918.eu/

  1. Please could you tell me what is Pip, Squeak and Wilfred. My grandad, his brother and a friend were born during WW1 and that was their nicknames as they grew up. Thanks.
