World War Memorabilia Sharing Event

  • 16 May 2014 2-7pm

Your museum needs you! Every family knows someone that made a difference in the tumultuous first half of the 20th Century and this is your chance to share and record these memories for future generations. Why not take this fantastic opportunity to bring along photographs, medals, letters or stories relating to World War I or II to be recorded forever, and help shape our picture of life at home and at war. Reproductions of these very precious items will be added to the museum's exhibition which will run throughout the rest of the year. This event will appeal to anyone with an interest in the history and events of WWI and WWII, as well as those with a local connection.
