Local people who gave their lives in the Great War and are commemorated on memorials feature in an exhibition at the Cottage Museum in Woodhall Spa.

Names from war memorials at Woodhall Spa, Kirkstead, Martin Dales and Roughton are included in the exhibition.

A selection of personal items and memorabilia connected with the First World War are also on display.

Volunteers at the museum are keen to add to the information they already hold about the war - and the people who were involved.

The Museum is delighted several visitors have already passed on information concerning some of the soldiers commemorated on the local war memorials.

This will help build up the archives and provide a valuable local resource for the future.

The current exhibition will run until the end of August.

It will then be changed to focus on everyday life during the first few months of the First World War.

The new display will open on the September 3.

It will include a brand new digital display, in addition to images featuring Woodhall Spa during the conflict from 1914 until 1918.

If anyone has any information, pictures or memorabilia which they feel may be of interest, they should contact the museum on 01526 353775 or info@cottagemuseum.co.uk

*The award-winning museum is open every day until the end of October from 10.30am – 4.30pm.

There is a small admission charge.
