History Information

During the 1914-1918 War, York contained the Headquarters, Northern Command, the York Record Office; the Depot of the West Yorkshire Regiment and four auxiliary hospitals. On the 28th April 1942, one of the "Baedeker" series of air raids was directed at the heart of the city. As the headquarters of the Northern Command, York, which was one of the military areas of that Command, and also contained the Depot of the West Yorkshire Regiment, was the centre of many military camps. It was surrounded by air force stations, and a number of prisoner-of -war camps were set up in the vicinity, a prisoner-of-war military hospital having been established at Naburn.
