Overview
-

The remarkable story of Lance Corporal George Hackney of the 36th Ulster Division, an ordinary Belfast soldier who took his camera to war in 1915. The images he took have become an exceptional and rare collection that documents the First World War first hand. George's images of soldiers training, traveling to France, and relaxing with friends and comrades contrast with his later images from the first day of the Battle of the Somme, life in the trenches and poignant reminders, that for many soldiers, they would never return home.

This story also reveals how one man's wartime experiences fueled an unlikely moral quest that was to change his life forever.
