The next in the series of free events will take place in Eccleshill library.
Richard Coomber from the www.shipleyww1.org organisation will be at the library on Saturday 24th September between 11.00am and 3.00pm with a database of local men who served in the First World War. Anyone who has photos or stories of family involved in WW1 is encouraged to bring them along on the day.
The event will launch a display in Eccleshill library commemorating the local men who were killed, missing or wounded in the Somme.
The display will run from 24th September – 8th October. It will include coverage of the First World War from the Shipley Times and Express from 1914-18. The research has been collated by www.shipleyww1.org.uk
