Pembroke in WWI
In commemoration of the centenary of the outbreak of WWI, we have created these pages to share information about the war's impact on Pembroke College.
As well as information on the direct impact of WWI on Pembroke, we have brought together some additional material donated by people who have a connection to the College.
