RESEARCHING PHOTOS OF SOLDIERS WHO TOOK PART
IN THE BATTLE OF ARRAS
For the centenary, the Wellington Quarry Museum in France, is preparing a big exhibition about the soldiers who were in Arras during the Great War.
For this project, the museum is looking for photos of soldiers who took part in the Battles of Arras in WW1.
The photos will be displayed in the whole town of Arras in big formats so that the inhabitants, local people or visitors can cross the faces of the men who lived in the town for 3 years.
This project will also be divided into 3 levels:
- Finding the photos of the soldiers
- Finding the stories of these soldiers (life, letters, archives…)
- Finding the descendants of these men to attend the dawn Service in Arras on April 9th 2017
If you have photos, ideas or links which can help us or if you are a descendant please contact us:
