An exhibition is being held at Royston Museum to help piece together the lives of those hailing from the town during the First World War.
From collecting eggs to fighting on the frontline, Saturday’s free exhibition from 10am until 4.45pm will give visitors the opportunity to learn about Roystonians during the Great War.
Featured in What Royston Did will be a view of the Christmas Truce of 1914 and an account of what it was like to be a prisoner of war.
Also on display is the efficient band of workers who carried out their duties at the Soldiers Hospital on Queens Road so admirably that some called it the best military hospital in Hertfordshire.
The exhibition is part of a project to create a database of those involved in the war effort in Royston from 1914 to 1918.
