During the First World War, the conflict had an enormous impact on every individual in the city of Norwich, and on its biggest employer, Colman's.

Colman's Connections, written by the Colman's Detectives volunteer community research group, uncovers stories and real-life experiences of how the Carrow Works factory and its workers were affected by the conflict.

Discover the mustard workers' roles on the front line, the impact of the war on women, families and workers on the home front, changes to factory life, the Colman's 'from cradle to grave' social welfare, and the part the firm played in the war effort.
