On Remembrance Sunday, Novermber 8th 2015, there will be a Blue Badge guided walk in London to find out how women did their bit on the home front during the First World War.

The organisers of the walk say: "Women emerged from their homes to work as nurses, munitionettes, police patrols, farm-hands and, in one extraordinary case, as a soldier on the front line. This walk takes in hidden memorials to the women, whose inspiring actions changed women’s lives forever".

The guide is Janet Smith.

The walk starts at 2pm at Temple Station, and lasts about two hours.
