First World War memorabilia plea

An appeal has been made for memorabilia of the First World War for a planned exhibition.

Gretton Local History Society is to stage the display in honour of men from the village who served in the Armed Forces.

Next year marks the centenary of the outbreak of the war and the society hopes to find out as much as possible about those who served or died in the conflict.

It is appealing for letters, postcards, photographs, newspaper cuttings, medals and even Army records or pieces of uniform.
