Great War Memory Board

Our Great War exhibition closed at the end of September, but one of the legacy's of the exhibition was the contributions made to a Memory Board. The Memory Board was installed in the gallery over the summer, and visitors were invited to add an 'In Memory of' postcard to the board. By and large, due to the subject matter of the exhibition, the remembrances were of those who had served and / or been killed during WW1. Unfortunately, we did not receive any cards that remembered women, however we have decided to continue the Memory Board over the course of the Centenary years.

Here are ten postcards that were submitted to the board. We will continue to post these on our blog in due course. Please note that some of these cards can be fairly detailed and upsetting to read.
