War Stories

Three new films telling First World War stories from Hull, North Lincolnshire and the East Riding are now online.


The films, made by Hull production company Nova Studios, have been commissioned as part of the Joining up the Humber project. They tell the moving, personal stories of people from the Humber region who lived through this transformative period in our history.


The East Riding film focuses on soldier Leonard May, whose experiences in Egypt and Palestine with the East Riding Yeomanry were a world away from his peacetime life as a Withernsea farmer's son.


From North Lincolnshire we follow brothers Sydney and Arthur Markham to the Western Front. Their poignant story unfolds through their letters home.


In Hull maritime expert Robb Robinson tells the dramatic story of his grandfather's experiences minesweeping on Hull trawlers, and we hear about the impact of the war on Hull's German population.


Simon, Matt and Alan from Nova Studios were a joy to work with and have done a brilliant job bringing these stories to life. I hope you enjoy them.
