‘Eyes Wide Shut’

In recognition of Armistice Day we’re posting our film that tells the story of a young sergeant in WW1 who was one of 306 British soldiers executed for military offences. The most common charge was desertion or cowardice. All their names were omitted from war memorials, their relatives did not receive military pensions and many families lived with the shame of the events and could never celebrate or commemorate their relatives’ involvement in the horrors of ‘The Great War’.

It’s been 5 years since all 306 were granted a full pardon by the British Government and this film (made prior to that pardon) recalls the campaign of one relative seeking justice for his great Uncle and portrays the events and circumstances that led to the final tragic execution by firing squad.
