Warminster Showcased Its National Lottery Funded First World War Centenary Project At The House Of Commons

Friday 24th October 2014:

First World War memorabilia on display
at the House Of Commons. 

On Wednesday 22nd October 2014, Warminster Town Clerk Heather Abernethie and Richard Broadhead (of Wiltshire Soldiers) attended an event in the House of Commons, hosted by TV historian Dan Snow, to showcase Warminster’s First World War project ‘Warminster in the Great War’. They joined groups from across the UK exploring a wide variety of First World War stories following investment from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF).

Parliamentarians got the opportunity to see what Warminster’s project has uncovered from artefacts and memorabilia brought in by local residents to ‘finds days’. All the items had been recorded and were displayed on banners and photographs. Every piece of information is being collated prior to creating a contemporary portable heritage resource in the form of a series of touchscreen units which will be located in schools, the Civic Centre and on tour at key venues and events in Warminster and its surrounding villages.

Heather Abernethie said: “Richard and I were very proud to be given this opportunity to demonstrate how much the community of Warminster has engaged with the project and to be able to recount some of the heartbreaking stories that our residents have told us. There were only 12 national projects on display, so it was an immense honour for Warminster to have been chosen as the representative for the south west region. Our own MP, Dr Andrew Murrison, is the Prime Minister’s special representative for the World War I Centenary and he was an integral part of the morning’s event. He gave Warminster a particular mention in his welcoming speech.”

Carole Souter, Chief Executive of HLF, said: “It’s been wonderful to see so many communities take up this opportunity to explore how the First World War affected their local area. So many interesting and unexpected stories have been uncovered, helping us to develop a rich and long-lasting picture of how this momentous conflict touched and shaped every corner of the UK.”

The events also saw the launch of Historypin’s First World War Centenary hub. The hub is a free online space where people right across the UK can share all the historical and contemporary photographs, films and audio clips that have been collected while marking the Centenary of the First World War. It has been developed in partnership with HLF, Jisc, the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) and Imperial War Museums.
