The material will be available on the People’s Collection Wales website and Project Officer Carys Morgan said:
‘Collecting and sharing these very personal and often poignant items contributes greatly to our understanding of the War and is an important way of commemorating its 100th anniversary. People will be able to contribute by coming to the roadshow events and having their items scanned by our staff. Or, they can also upload items and memories to the People’s Collection Wales website themselves at any time if they can’t make it to one of the events.’
To get involved in the project, bring along your First World War letters, diaries, photographs and other memorabilia to one of the following events between 10am and 4pm.
12 March: Pontardawe Arts Centre
14 March: Brecon Library
18 March: Ruthin Library
20 March: Picton Community Centre, Haverfordwest
