Living History...

Travelling Great War Interpretive Exhibit 

 

 

The Great War Living History Committee has a collection of WWI artifacts comprised of authentic and reproduction pieces, including uniforms, that tell the story of the First World War on an item by item basis. We transport this hands-on exhibit and set up at public venues in varying configurations.

 

Our exhibit is presented with interpreters uniformed as Royal Newfoundland Regiment soldiers. People are welcome to pick up an item and have a closer look while we explain it. We believe it’s important to have physical contact with artifacts to help history come alive. Our collection includes pieces of kit ranging from personal items (sewing kit, toothbrush & etc.) to an almost full scale replica of a 3” Stokes Mortar used to provide fire support in the trenches.

 

At our exhibits the public is welcome to bring in their wartime memorabilia and share their stories. Sometimes we can even provide some additional information on their items. Artifacts from later periods are welcome as well.
