Join us in November for a free exhibition examining life on the Home Front and the legacy of the Great War in North East Lincolnshire.
The exhibition will include photographs, artefacts and original documents from North East Lincolnshire Archives that tell the story of the impact of the war on the area and the conflict’s lasting legacy of rolls of honour, medals and memorials. Reflecting the history of the local area, the display will include items relating to the Lincolnshire Regiment, the Royal Navy at Immingham and the Grimsby Cenotaph.
Among the items on display will be a plan of the Cleethorpes Peace Memorial, documents connected with the Grimsby Shell Factory and items relating to the sinking of the liner “Lusitania”. There will also be a chance to see some rare images of the Ruhleben internment camp in Germany, where many trawlermen from Grimsby were held for the duration of the war.
