This screening of the 1917 film “The Battle of the Ancre” with live accompaniment by the Waltham Forest Youth Orchestra is the special finale to our 2018 World War One Day. It is the official film of the British Army’s autumn campaign on the Somme and contains haunting images of trench warfare, mud, troops advancing into no man’s land, use of horses and the first views of the ‘Tank’. Waltham Forest Youth Orchestra performed Laura Rossi’s magnificent score for “The Battle of the Somme” last year. Laura also composed the music for this film and she and Toby Haggith,Imperial War Museum, will introduce it.
