Throughout 2016, the Welsh National Book of Remembrance for the First World War has visited numerous venues and has been at the heart of our community activities across Wales. From February 9th to mid-April 2017, the Book and the accompanying exhibition will form the basis of an exciting and thoughtful programme of events in Narberth Museum, reflecting on the impact that the First World War had on that community. As at other venues, the digital copy of the Book will sit alongside the original, so that people will be able to view individual pages. Volunteers in Narberth Museum are also busy compiling local soldiers’ stories to be included in the exhibition.

As we are learning as the Book tours the country, it is by focusing in on individual stories in this way that we can begin to understand the true horror of  he loss of the 35,000 men and women listed.

For the duration of the exhibition, Narberth Museum’s work hopes to capture the human side of living through war, whether on the Western Front or the home Front. Some of the stories will be obscure, some poignant and others joyful. The purpose is to bring people together, celebrate their shared experiences and feeling of  community through the creation of a ‘new’ book: the ‘Narberth scrapbook’. If anyone is interested in contributing a double page to the book, or simply in discovering more about it, please email emma@narberthmuseum.co.uk. While at the Museum, the book will also inspire a series of talks, workshops and events including a digital Instagram exhibition inspired by peace, an art installation, and a talk on War poetry by local historian Terry John.
