The Salisbury Great War Exhibition tells the story of the Great War through the experiences of over 600 casualties who fell from the city and the surrounding villages. The exhibition contains personal information, including letters and photographs, outlining the experiences and the horrific conditions those men had to endure. It explains the often very surprising fate of each soldier, in the process uncovering much hidden information that speaks volumes for the poor state of communications at the time. There are also features on the Outbreak of the War, the Real War Horse, Gas, and the stories of men from Wiltshire who were executed including one from Salisbury. This informative exhibition, curated by Richard Broadhead, will be an excellent precursor to the Museum’s major exhibition on the Great War, opening 3 October this year.
