Meet Tommy Atkins’ takes the audience not just through Tommy’s war but also his life back home in Britain’s post-war.  We learn of his experiences in the trenches – fighting on the Somme, at Passchendaele and Loos, and also the boredom, the loss and indeed the comradeship.  Returning to Britain, Tommy shows us how a generation of men were maltreated but
ultimately it was his generation that forced through the foundations of the Welfare State.
From the beginning of the great War to the end of the Second, Private Tommy Atkins was there.  This is his story.
