Looking back at the First World War from today’s viewpoint, it can often be seen as something which happened in distant battlefields across Europe. This exhibition explores the war not only from the experience of those caught up in the horror of the front lines, but by those at home in Lanarkshire, who were also part of those catastrophic events.
South Lanarkshire Leisure and Culture and Culture NL Museums and Heritage and Museum Service have been collaborating over the past 18 months to produce the exhibition.
Using social, industrial, military and archive items from the collections of both authorities, the exhibition will feature personal stories to allow visitors an insight into the impact of war on all aspects Lanarkshire’s social and industrial life, as well as at the war front.
This HLF funded partnership project is part of a four year national UK programme, commemorating the centenary of the First World War.
