Halifax Courier - - Yourcourier -

What did your fam­ily do for the Great War ef­fort? Whether mil­i­tary or civil­ian, the Hal­i­fax Great War Her­itage So­ci­ety will help you re­search your wartime past.

As part of the Hal­i­fax Her­itage Fes­ti­val there will be a Great War Mem­o­ra­bilia Day at Bank­field Mu­seum on Sep- tem­ber 12, and res­i­dents are en­cour­aged to bring any pho­to­graphs, di­aries, post­cards, trench art, uni­form, medals or other arte­facts re­lat­ing to the First World War.

En­thu­si­asts from the Her­itage As­so­ci­a­tion say they will do their best to as­sess them and help you find fur­ther de- tails about how your fam­ily might have con­trib­uted.

The arte­facts will also be recorded by the so­ci­ety for fu­ture re­search on Calderdale’s war ef­fort.
