Shellshock versus Cowardice on the Somme: The Life and Death of Private Harry Farr

Professor Sir Simon Wessely hosts the third and final of our WW1 Lectures.   

Professor Wessely is Chair of Psychological Medicine, King's College London.  Director, King's Centre for Military Health Research and President, Royal College of Psychiatrists.

Private Harry Farr was a British soldier executed for alleged cowardice during the Battle of the Somme.  His fate was particularly tragic because he had a history of "shell shock".   After many years, Harry and all the others executed for military offences during the First World War, were finally granted a posthumous pardon.

Private Harry Farr was executed on October 16th 1916.   Professor Wessely was an expert witness and has written and reserched the background to the case.  Things are never quite what they seem!
