We have both been busy with our final assessments for this year, including a presentation for this project, which you can watch in our memorialisation section.
When we first started this project, we set out to research two historical figures: Richard Charles Graves-Sawle and Joseph Hunkin. We have decided to carry on focusing on only one of the stories – Graves-Sawle’s. Although Hunkin is equally interesting, we feel that we have retrieved more information on Graves-Sawle, and Hunkin has been slightly neglected. That is not to say that Hunkin did not play a role in the First World War, we just have not managed to piece together a great deal of his story. But perhaps future students (or anyone interested in his life) will do so…
We started this investigation into the lives of two intriguing individuals around two months ago. Since then we have started to accumulate information on their role in the historic conflict.
So where did we start?
