The exhibition 'Swindon in the Great War' opens Wednesday 6th August


This exhibition  Swindon Museum and Art Gallery, Bath Road, is housed on the ground floor, to the right and left as you go in through the front door.
This important, interesting and moving exhibition has been created by Mike Pringle and Mark Sutton with the support of Swindon Museum and Art Gallery, the Local Studies and Family History team, and members of Swindon’s heritage community. The exhibition has been made possible thanks to a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
The launch will include a talk by Mike Pringle, author of ‘Swindon: Remembering 1914-18’
So we have another book launched this week, I haven't known people who launched books very often, and suddenly there are two in one week!
Here's the cover of Mike's book, also available in Pen and Paper.
Mike's book also looks great, it was launched last night at Christ Church, the first 75 people to buy the book will also receive some commemorative 'Pringle Chocolate' there was still some left last night.
