Salute to re­searchers

Nottingham Post - - OPINION -

LOOK­ING back over 2018, one could hardly have missed the hard work that cer­tain groups put in to make the com­mem­o­ra­tion of

the end of the First World War a truly mem­o­rable oc­ca­sion.

Arnold Lo­cal His­tory Group, af­ter hours and hours of hard work, re­search, talks and writ­ings, brought about a dis­play of pho­to­graphs, film and writ­ten ma­te­rial, de­pict­ing how “Arnold’s Mighty Army”, men and women alike, rose mag­nif­i­cently to the evils and chal­lenge of war. In­spir­ing in ev­ery way, it at­tracted more than 1,500 peo­ple and the li­brary said that for the whole of the ex­hi­bi­tion, there were many more peo­ple in the li­brary than nor­mal.

The ex­hi­bi­tion has, sadly, come to an end and our grate­ful thanks go to those vol­un­teers of the ALHG for giv­ing us an in­sight into what our fore­bears en­dured in that time of ter­ri­ble trou­ble and up­heaval.
