COLLECTION DAY: The King's High School for Girls, Warwick

King’s High and Warwick Preparatory School are organising a Digital Collection Day, in association with The Royal Fusiliers of Warwickshire, for the Midlands.

Camilla Wellman, head of history at King’s High, said: “Be a history hero and help save our past. Do you have any items related to the First World War? Are you willing to share these online as part of a national project to capture the objects and stories of the Great War? “If so, bring your diaries, letters, photographs, memoirs, objects (no firearms), or maybe a story told to you about your family’s experience in the war, to the Lest We Forget Digital Collection Day at Warwick Prep School on Saturday June 9, from 10am to 2pm. “In an Antiques Roadshow style format, you will be interviewed, and any objects or memorabilia photographed and digitally scanned.” On Friday students are being trained by the Lest We Forget team and Living History will be doing demonstrations and pupil’s parents will be able to go along between 4.30pm and 6pm for a Digital Collection Evening.
