The Call to Arms

Using letters and archive images this exhibition tells the fascinating 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.

All five Wiltshire at War exhibitions will be touring around Wiltshire until 2019.
