The Call to Arms – The first exhibition in the Wiltshire at War: Community Stories series is back at the Springfield Community Campus, Corsham, and is being held in the library there from Saturday 6 February – Thursday 3 March 2016.
Using letters and archive images this exhibit 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.
Those from Corsham itself can learn about their First World War history through the stories of the Scots Guard, (who stayed twice in Corsham), and The Corsham Protection Company, who were Reservists – ex-soldiers, retired from the regular army:
