Meet Tommy Atkins Peter Gill Meet Tommy Atkins' takes the audience not just through Tommy's war, but also his life back home in Britain post war. We learn of his experiences in the trenches - fighting on the Somme, at Passchendaele and Loos; and also of the boredom, the loss and indeed the comradeship.

From the beginning of the Great War to the end of the Second, Private Tommy Atkins was there. This is his story.
