Home By Christmas

  • Until 31 October 2014 *on now
  • From 23 August 2014

During the early stages of World War One most people in Britain thought that the fighting would be over quickly and that troops sent off to battle would be “home by Christmas”. This exhibition of local stories, recruitment posters and memorabilia is part of a series of exhibitions planned across Dumfries and Galloway museums commemorating a past generation caught up in The Great War. We hope that local people will visit Annan Museum to see the exhibition and share their family accounts of parents, grandparents or great grandparents who experienced World War One either on the battle field or the home front.
