The exhibition features the story of Great Gonerby soldier Robert Harvey of the Lincolnshire Regiment who died on Christmas Day 1917. We have used unpublished letters loaned by his family to discover Robert’s story – little was known about him and his descendants had not even seen his picture.
The exhibition features specially made films made with SKDC in which modern day Grantham residents reflect on the story behind Roberts quietly affectionate letters.
The exhibition also includes Edith Smith, The Machine Gun Corps and a ‘memory wall’ where you can commemorate your WW1 family.
