Hidden treasures event for Great War

Fashion, books and toys from the Great War will be on display at a Hidden Treasures event hosted by Nottinghamshire County Council on February 22.

The event, at county hall in West Bridgford from 10am until 3pm, is another chance for people to bring along their Great War memorabilia such as trench art, service records, photographs, diaries, letters and postcards, medals or artefacts relating to the Home Front or the various theatres of war.

Diaries and letters are particularly needed as a Great War blog is in place documenting every day of 2014.

A panel of experts will be on hand at county hall to identify the items as well as representatives from museums across the county including the Mercian Regiment, Flintham, Bassetlaw and Ruddington Transport Museum.
