The latest issue of the NMMC journal Troze presents A Quaker Record of Maritime Falmouth in World War One by Pamela Richardson.

The paper presents the  story of the leading Falmouth ship agents the Fox family  during World War I, focusing on the internal struggles of families with differing views of war and their duties as citizens of a nation at war, the way the town as a whole coped with an influx of strangers, both friend and now foe, and finally its return to peace.

Pamela Richardson is University of Exeter Honorary Fellow, and writes and speaks on a variety of Quaker-related subjects.
