The Great War News from Lancaster in 1914
These pages include reports from the local press in Lancaster and district from August 1914, some illustrated with photographs from the museum's collection. The accounts provide details of war time life and happenings at home, but also contain fascinating accounts from soldiers of the 1st Battalion on active service on the Western Front, as well as the exploits of the 5th Battalion starting their training and guarding the Great Western Railway.
Only a proportion of our collections are on display at anyone time. Certain items are on loan for display in other institutions. An appointment is required to consult any of our collections which are held in store.
