Work about to start on our World War One project

For the last few weeks, we have been making preparations for our work to begin on the Military Covenant-sponsored project to commemorate the first year of war in Plymouth in 1914. The Plymouth’s Great War exhibition has now opened at the Museum, and it’s a really fascinating and very well put-together exhibition – really well worth a visit. Our job now is to go out into the community in Plymouth over the next few months and encourage families to look into their own family archives to see what we can find from 1914/15. We will be collecting all that material – in photographic or scanned form, so that families can be assured they won’t have to let their precious items out of their hands – and towards the end of the year will be publishing it and donating the archive to the city. Lots more news to come.
