‘A Call to Arms’ Exhibition visits Marlborough: 18-30 Jan 2016

A Call to Arms – The first exhibition in the Wiltshire at War: Community Stories series will be held in St. Peter’s Church, Marlborough from 18th-30th January 2016.

Using letters and archive images this exhibit tells the fascinating community stories of men in Wiltshire called to arms in the early months of the First World War. It includes information panels and an interactive video display of stories, and is the first of five Wiltshire at War exhibitions, which are part of Wiltshire County’s multi-year remembrance of the First World War. Stories have been gathered from all across Wiltshire to create this exhibition. Those from Marlborough itself can learn about their First World War history through the story of the Army Service Corps (ASC), based in Marlborough from 1915:
