The Devon Vocies exhibition uses first-hand accounts to explore Devon life during this extraordinary period. Through their own words meet men, women and children who lived and worked in the county, or found themselves here as a consequence of the war.

Devon Voices 1914-1918: Home Front Stories

15 September 2018 to 6 January 2019

Explore Devon’s unique First World War history and discover the people who were part of it.

People in Devon experienced the First World War in many different ways. This exhibition uses first-hand accounts to explore Devon life during this extraordinary period. Through their own words meet men, women and children who lived and worked in the county, or found themselves here as a consequence of the war. The stories in this exhibition are those of real people. A farmer, a nurse, an entertainer, a young sailor and a policeman are just some of the people featured and their words tell of lives carried on through turbulent times.

These stories have been uncovered by modern-day Devon residents who explored local archives, museum collections and family records to bring these past voices to life. Explore how archives and objects tell these stories and discover how RAMM collected objects to record people’s experiences of the war years.

This exhibition marks the centenary of the First World War Armistice. A partnership project between RAMM and the Devon Remembers Heritage Project, it features archive material, images and objects from Devon Archives, the West Country Studies Library, Royal Albert Memorial Museum, Imperial War Museum, local organisations and family collections.

Discover some of the stories in the Devon voices interactive map.
