Welcome to Shropshire Remembers
An Exhibition On The Lives Of the Men From The Strettons Who Died In The First World War
It took just ten days to raise the ‘Accrington Pals’ volunteer battalion; in ten minutes, most of them were slaughtered at the Somme.
This mixed-media exhibition will tell the extraordinary stories of the women of Oswestry and their WWI experiences, as uncovered by Qube’s Homefront Heroines research project.
From the director of “Amelie,” this is the amazing story of one woman’s journey to discover the truth behind the disappearance of her lover who left her for the Somme front line in 1917.
