War Years Remembered expo returns

THE POPULAR 'War Years Remembered Exhibition' is returning to Ballymena once again.

It was confirmed at last week’s Cultural Services Commitee, that the exhibition, which showcases artefacts and memorabilia from both world wars. will take place from March 1 to April 10 in the Mid-Antrim Museum.

Visitors will discover different experiences of the two wars from a local perspective, on the Home Front and in service overseas.

History buffs and novices alike will be able to learn about the life of a soldier as well as handle military hardware from the period.

Each week members of the Exhibition will be available for group and school tours.

The Council's Good relations Unit agreed to a grant allocation of 1,200 towards costs.

This year's event will also include reference to the Polish Community's contribution to the Allied Cause.
