Derbyshire Life - - Books -

Ch­ester­field and Derby mu­se­ums both have fas­ci­nat­ing ex­hi­bi­tions re­lat­ing to the First World War. At Ch­ester­field, un­til 12th Jan­u­ary, is ‘World War I – The Trench Ex­pe­ri­ence’, a re-cre­ation of a trench, ac­com­pa­nied by de­tails of the men from Ch­ester­field who fought in the war.

The ex­hi­bi­tion at Derby (un­til 20th), in part­ner­ship with the 9th/12th Royal Lancers Mu­seum, ex­plores the town’s con­tri­bu­tion to the war in its clos­ing months and the im­pact in the im­me­di­ate years af­ter 1918.
