Hinton Martell and the First World War

The museum will be visiting Hinton Martell on Thursday 11 October 2018 appealing for information from the time of the first world war.

Did your ancestors live in Hinton Martell or the surrounding area during the first world war? Did any of them serve in the forces? What was life like in the village? If you have any information the museum would like to know.

'The One Hundred Year Heritage of the First World War for Wimborne and East Dorset' is a project run by the museum. The project aims to record the lives of people from East Dorset who served in the forces and those who stayed behind, such as women who took on jobs left vacant by men. The information will be made available on the project website www.eastdorsetfirstworldwar.org. The project is funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.

The museum will be at Hinton Martell Village Hall on Thursday 11 October 2018 from 10am to 2pm. If you have any photographs or press cuttings relating to the local area, or to individuals, please bring them along.

For further information please contact the museum.
