World War One Exhibition

2014 marks the 100th anniversary of one of the costliest conflicts in history – the First World War. The losses were felt in nearly every town and village in Britain as more than 1.1 million lives were sacrificed. Mothers, wives and sweethearts would never see their men again, – they would lay forever in a foreign field.

The current exhibition on display at the Denbighshire Archives features photographs of just a few of the men who served, many of whom never returned home to their loved ones waiting for them. Two of the soldiers, brothers Pte Lawrence Henry Jones, 8th Bn Manchester Regiment and Pte Robert Hugh Jones, Royal Welsh Fusiliers were both killed and papers relating to them are on display. Also shown are casualty reports published by the Denbighshire Free Press throughout the War.

This small exhibition will be on display throughout July and August 2014.

    Very interesting exhibition, we would encourage you to post details about the exhibition on the Cymru’n Cofio Wales Remembers 1914-1918 website (www.walesremembers.org), we would also promote it with our supporting social media.
