During World War One, children and women at home were encouraged to help the war effort by sewing and knitting socks, scarves, and gloves to keep soldiers warm. Heidi Kurtz uncovers this remarkable story and shows how, over the cold winter of 1915, soldiers at Gallipoli were reminded that people back home were thinking of them.
