PEOPLE with WW1 memorabilia and photographs are being asked to contact the Museum of Somerset.

The museum wants to reveal previously untold stories that emerge from people’s family albums, diaries and other memorabilia.

The results could be displayed at an exhibition in July 2014 called ‘Somerset Remembers’.

They are interested in items relating to agriculture, munitions, rationing, voluntary organisations, hospitals and nursing. Any items relating to prisoners of war, war memorials, soldiers’ charities and family life are also of interest.

David Hall, Somerset County Council cabinet member for Heritage Services, said: “The stories which emerge from First World War photographs, letters and other objects are powerful reminders of what the war meant to Somerset.

“We hope people are willing to lend some of these precious items for the exhibition and so help us to preserve the memory of how the war changed so many lives.”
