The Imperial War Museum's archives offers a wealth of material to help you find out more about an ancestor's experiences of military service or life on the home front during war time. It's here that Alan meets Professor Edgar Jones, a historian and expert in military psychiatry, to learn how Thomas Darling's wartime experiences might have affected him.
