To commemorate the ninetieth anniversary of the Armistice, this exhibition is based upon the personal stories of men, women and children.

In Memoriam looks at the experiences of the front line soldier, sailor and airman; the munitions worker and the nurse; the prisoner of war and the internee; the artist and the writer; the disabled and the shell-shocked; the widow and the orphan.

Their stories are told through personal objects which include a bierstein presented to the captain of the winning British football team during the Christmas Truce match of 1914 and a rosebud from the wreath that lay on the coffin of the Unknown Warrior six years later.
