Great War Memorabilia Day 2016

Saturday 12 September
Research Room and Great War Galleries: Bankfield Museum

This year our WW Family History Day again attracted large numbers of people wishing to know more about their Great War ancestors from photographs, medals, documents and other memorabilia. Over time we will be posting up the results of our research and combining it with what was already known to provide the stories of these family members.
