Dumfries & Galloway Standard - - INTIMATIONS -

A group of Army Cadets have left a last­ing im­pres­sion on An­nan’s wartime her­itage.

The young peo­ple used their voices to help the town’s mu­seum stage its lat­est ex­hi­bi­tion which looks at the First World War through pho­to­graphs and let­ters of lo­cal peo­ple.

They helped nar­rate some of the let­ters and sto­ries to make a short film which ac­com­pa­nies the ex­hi­bi­tion, Records of War: Pho­tog­ra­phy and Let­ters from World War One.

It is free to view from 11am to 4pm Mon­day to Satur­day.

An­nan coun­cil­lor Archie Dry­burgh, who is the re­gion’s Armed Forces Cham­pion, met the cadets to praise them for their work which will be a legacy for gen­er­a­tions to come.

He said: “The cadets were ab­so­lutely bril­liant, very pro­fes­sional in the way they ap­proached this and how they took it on board. It was good ex­pe­ri­ence for them and they learnt lot about how the Great War af­fected the town. A lot of the let­ters are poignant.

“It is a very in­ter­est­ing ex­hi­bi­tion and any­one who has not seen it should pop in.”

Well done Coun­cil­lor Archie Dry­burgh praised the An­nan Army Cadets in­volved in the project
