Lest We Forget: World War One Collection Day, 10th November

Can you help the Rumble Museum at Cheney School save stories, memories, and objects from the First World War?

We need people to bring any objects (photographs, diaries, letters, medals, souvenirs, etc) that your family has kept from World War One, or just stories that have been passed down to our Digital Collection Day. We will then record your story or photograph the object and get details from you on their background and upload this to a major web site to be launched on 11th November 2018. The web site will be freely available to anyone to use and will help preserve these key objects and documents from the War.

 Please come along to the Rumble Museum at Cheney School with your objects between 2 and 5pm on Friday 10th November, 2017.

This is part of a national project called ‘Lest We Forget’ co-ordinated by the University of Oxford – see https://www.facebook.com/OxfordLWF/

Please contact us in advance with rough details of what you will be bringing along. We will have experts on hand to help to give you more information on the items. There will also be refreshments and an opportunity to talk to members from the wider community.
