The Strategic Hub for Organised Crime Research (SHOC)
Report on the two-day annual conference of the Strategic Hub for Organised Crime Research (SHOC) in partnership with the UK Home Office and the Bundeskriminalamt Germany (the Federal Criminal Police Office), and co-funded by the Internal Security Fund of the European Union.
Wars cannot be executed without labourers. During the First World War – and in particular following the terrible losses of the Somme in 1916 – Britain’s War Office assembled an army of workers. Yet today, they are almost uniformly forgotten. At an event at RUSI next week, we bring ‘The Unremembered’ out of the shadows acknowledging their extraordinary courage and sacrifices.
