Patriotism and Propaganda in First World War Britain: The National War Aims Committee and Civilian Morale

By David Monger | Go to book overview

APPENDIX 1
Local Case Studies
IN order to survey an adequate sample of propaganda in local areas, together with the related Speakers’ Daily Reports, 30 local case studies were selected, using statistics from the card-index database.1 A representative survey required that these constituencies should cover
1. varied regions (ten from each);
2. different types of social composition (and their numerical significance within each region);
3. different secretarial affiliations;
4. WACs established at varying times throughout their period of operations.
These four issues were all judged using the non-card-index data table (see appendix table 2.4). It also required examination of WACs of varying levels of activity. This was judged by the number of successful grant applications recorded in the Constituency economic activities table (see appendix table 2.3). An analysis of this data provided the following conclusions.
Regions and Constituency Classifications
The ‘non-card-index data’ table in the card-index database (see appendix table 2.4 for sample) shows that the three regions (as defined in that table) contained broadly similar numbers of constituencies, and much more similar numbers of constituencies with WACs:
1. North: 146 (108 with WACs; 107 excluding 1 unclassified constituency)
2. Midlands/Wales: 186 (120 with WACs; 113 excluding 7 unclassified constituencies)
3. London/South: 196 (116 with WACs)

1 A complete and accessible version of the database, together with further appendices and samples, is available in Monger, ‘National War Aims Committee’.
