To mark the poignant anniversary of the outbreak of the First World War last year, WAG Screen made a film about a war memorial. They selected the memorial at random as they didn’t want to choose the men whose story we would tell. They uncovered the story of one man in particular, Robert Crowder, whose family had held his memory dear and had a kept a remarkable unpublished archive of documents and photographs. The film, Tell Them of Us, is based on his story and told from the home front and from the perspective of his family. I had the honour of playing the role of his brother William Crowder.
