During the First World War a knitting craze swept across Britain, as women everywhere wanted to `kit out' their Tommies with socks, mittens, balaclavas, vests, jumpers and all manner of knitwear - some more graciously received than others! Millions of socks were sent from the home front to the fighting fronts in a bid to wage war on the dreaded `trench foot' and thoughtful knitters would often tuck a love note or simple message into parcels to offer extra cheer to the soldier far from home. `Knitting for Tommy' explores the knitting craze through magazine adverts, postcards, cartoons and photographs of the day, as well as offering a guide to kitting out your own First World War Tommy using original knitting patterns.
