Munitions laying on an Union Jack - from an album of photos from TH & J Daniels

In January and February we extended the One Man's War display from November 2014.

In March we will be taking a look at the women who went to work in the factories through a collaboration with local artist Sue Brown - find out more here.

Later in 2015 the Museum is interested in telling the stories around how the War stimulated creativity, innovation and technology.

From our own collections we will be looking at the stories of Redler and The Ebley Folding Furniture Company. The Redler exhibition will run in Gallery 2 throughout March - find more information here. The story of Alexander Paice and folding furniture will run from the beginning of June until the end of July.

However, we also want to tell the story of Dudbridge Ironworks who made aeroplane engines for the French, to discover the history of the Shoddy factories, and to find out stories about working at Listers, Daniels, Erinoid and Pedersens during the war.

We are hoping to work with the local history societies and other interested parties to tell these stories - if you have something to contribute please contact us
