If you didn’t get a chance to see the WW1 “From Farnhill to the Front” exhibition last year (or if you’d like to have another look), a selection of the display boards and a slideshow will be on display, upstairs in the Institute, to commemorate 101 years since the end of WW1. Saturday 9/11/2019, 10.00am – 12.00. Free admission.
The front shows a child receiving a gun from a kneeling soldier and presenting him with laurel leaves. The child is watched over by an angel holding a dove of peace.
On the rear, the text reads:
Crosshills & Dist.
To commemorate the victorious conclusion of the Great War
and the signing of the peace
June 28th 1919
