Thoresby Call To Arms Exhibition

All year till 30th November 2018

This ongoing exhibition at the Queens
Royal Lancers & Nottinghamshire Yeomanry Museum was launched to mark
the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War and explores the
contribution made by local regiments during the conflict.

Running until 2018, the emphasis has shifted each year to reflect key events and the regiment’s roles during the conflict.

The exhibition, which gives visitors the
chance to find out about life in the trenches, has been funded thanks to
a £7,000 grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF). As part of the
Call to Arms project, local people have been invited to collect
photographs, newspaper clippings, documents, as well as family tales
passed down to help them build a clear picture of what life was really
like during the conflict. Experience and learn about life in the
trenches with a life-size trench you can walk through.

Please note: The Queen’s Royal Lancers
& Nottinghamshire Yeomanry Museum is open Wednesday to Sunday and
closed Monday and Tuesday, unless a bank holiday.
