The Great War Dundee project was awarded the 2016 Stephen Fry Award at Discovery Day 2016. University of Dundee historians Dr Billy Kenefick and Dr Derek Patrick co-founded the Great War Dundee project and, alongside partner groups, are coordinating the city-wide approach to commemorate the conflict. Their research has led to startling discoveries about Dundee’s contribution to the war effort as well as a greater understanding of the conflict’s impact and legacy in the city. Dr Billy Kenefick, Dr Derek Patrick and their colleagues Caroline Brown from Archive Services and Matthew Jarron from Museum Services, worked tirelessly to communicate the research results to a wide audience in Dundee and beyond.
