LEST WE FORGET - SHARE YOUR WW1 STORIES AND OBJECTS
Do you have any items relating to the First World War? Would you like to share and preserve them for future generations?
York Army Museum is hosting a digital collection day, as part of a nationwide campaign to preserve memories of the First World War.
Bring along your diaries, letters, photographs, objects or stories about your family’s experience in the war, and our friendly team will record and preserve them as part of a freely-available, online collection.
Volunteers and experts will be on hand to record your memories and shed light on your objects and family stories.
Location: York Army Museum
Date: Sunday 28 April 2019
Time: 11:00 - 14:00 (pop-in, no appointment necessary)
The Lest We Forget project is a collaboration between the Commonwealth War Graves Commission and the University of Oxford, and is funded by Heritage Lottery Fund. The team will be staging events across the UK, encouraging people to bring in their family heirlooms and preserve them for future generations.
