Volunteers are needed for a major project which will tell the previously untold personal stories of local people involved in the First World War.
The project will be launched on Monday, 4 August at the Treasure House, Beverley, exactly 100 years after the outbreak of the war which claimed so many millions of lives.
The East Riding Local Studies & Archive Service holds hundreds of photographs of local First World War soldiers, sailors and other people. East Riding of Yorkshire Council Archivist Lizzy Baker said: “These photographs show a really wide variety of people – men from all ranks and walks of life who were serving at the front, wounded, killed or awarded a medal. Unfortunately we know very little about these men other than their names and faces.”
