MEMORIES and memorabilia from the First World War are needed for a major exhibition being held at museums throughout Hampshire.

The team behind the exhibitions are looking for anything that tells a story about Hampshire’s involvement in the war, such as military items, medals, photographs, documents, letters or household items from the 1914-18 period.

Four drop-in sessions will be held in January and February – the nearest to Basingstoke is taking place at Winchester Discovery Centre on Saturday, between 1pm and 4.30pm.
