Stage 1
Think about the work of Fabian Ware and the Commission. What kind of problems do you think they might have come across? Make sure you consider emotional issues such as what the families of the dead might want for their loved ones and themselves as well as the more practical side of what would be involved. Make a list of the problems – you will need these for later.


Stage 2
Now use the pop up buttons in this section to learn more about the work carried out. For each pop up section, write a short outline of the problem and make a note of anything that shows how the Commission tried to treat everyone equally.


Stage 3
Look back to your list from Stage 1. How many of the problems did you anticipate? Did you think of any that aren’t mentioned in the pop ups?

Write these two headings at the top of your page:

LOGISTICAL PROBLEMS
(Difficulty with obtaining and/or transporting people or objects)

MORAL DILEMMAS
(Difficulty in deciding what’s right or fair)

With a partner, look back over your lists and decide under which of the two headings each problem should come. Now imagine you are Fabian Ware and each write a paragraph explaining how you have tried to make sure all servicemen and women were treated equally.
