People in Nottinghamshire are being asked to bring objects and heirlooms related to World War I to Mansfield Library on Sunday 19th May from 11am – 3pm.
The Mansfield Chad reports that Nottinghamshire Council is looking to collect items such as photographs, trench art and memorabilia for an exhibition, entitled Trent to Trenches, focused on the Centenary of World War I.
Nottinghamshire County Council archives manager Mark Dorrington said: ‘We hope people will search through their attics and garages and turn up with artefacts that are unique to Nottinghamshire.
‘Next year there will be a Great War blog which will document every day of 2014 and beyond so letters and diaries would be welcomed by the experts.’
The exhibition will take place from July to November 2014 at Nottingham Castle Museum & Art Gallery.
