Unemployment rose to three million and many ex-servicemen and their families were forced into emigration by absolute poverty.

The Aftermath exhibition was constructed from official and unofficial documents, hardship letters and financial assistance applications from ex-servicemen. The exhibition highlights the tragic plight of ex-servicemen, war disabled ex-servicemen and their families in post-war Britain.

The exhibition runs until November 11, then tours throughout Scotland and other parts of the UK.
