Vera Brittain



Follow the links below to view photographs of Vera Brittain and her circle. In due time, there may follow a set of notes, a directorate to Testament of Youth. I have taken these images from the plates supplied in Alan Bishop's edition of Brittain's diary, Chronicle of Youth: The War Diary 1913-1917 (1982).
