Local WW1 Stories: Nottingham University College Officer Training Corps


Nottinghamshire Archives
Friday 15 February 2019 | 2pm - 4pm

Lifelines amateur research group have been awarded £8,500 from the Heritage Lottery Fund to research and develop the history of the University College Nottingham's Officer Training Corps (OTC) in the First World War.

The Lifelines team, in partnership with Culture Syndicates, will run three workshops for local people to learn how to research the OTC, visit local archives and learn how to develop research skills to help them search for their own family history. Over the course of five months, the team will research the OTC to produce an e-book about the history of the men who went away to war to be shared with the local Nottinghamshire community.
This project will be completed in collaboration with the current East Midlands OTC and the University of Nottingham's Hidden Histories team to build a clear picture of the OTC during the First World War.

The OTC was made up of students from both of the current universities in Nottingham, and until relatively little has been known about the 1,632 cadets who had passed through the organisation by 1918. With thanks to National Lottery players, we can now find out about the many young men who gave their lives for their country, and about those who came home.

This is one of three workshops that will be running between November 2018 and April 2019.
