Do you have items from those who experienced the war either at home or at the front? Take them along to an event at Ruthin Library on March 18th to be digitised and shared online.
The event will aim to capture the personal experiences of the Welsh involved in the War. The war affected everyone; those who fought, and those who stayed behind. If you have items relating to any aspect of life during the war years, please bring them along to an event to have them preserved and shared digitally. This includes letters, photographs, postcards and other memorabilia from those who experienced the war either at home or at the front.
A national project led by The National Library of Wales in partnership with the libraries, special collections and archives of Wales is aiming to reveal the hidden history of World War One as it affected all aspects of Welsh life, language and culture. The digital collection will be available online and People’s Collection Wales, a project partner, is inviting the public to become a part of the project by bringing their materials along to one of a series of events where staff will be on hand to scan letters, photographs, certificates, postcards, diaries and any other documents or memorabilia.
