WWI soldiers remembered through new play

The First World War drama For King and Country has returned to the London stage for the first time in 30 years.

It tells the story of a young soldier who is faced with the firing squad for desertion.

The play is similar to the story of Harry Farr from Kensington, who was executed for cowardice - at a time before post traumatic stress was understood.

His granddaughter fought successfully for his pardon, and today met the crew and cast.
