No Petticoats Here is a project that tells the stories of remarkable women of the First World War through song. The research, songwriting, composition and delivery has taken about a year and has taken me from Portsmouth to Pervijze and from Ulverston to Ypres by way of many museums, battlefields, private collections, libraries and research centres.
