About

In 2015, the From the Trenches to Tendring project began work collecting First World War correspondence held in private collections across the Tendring area of Essex. These family collections also revealed souvenirs of the time, such as embroidered handkerchiefs and cards, and personal items such as bibles, diaries, and a cigarette case that all made their way back to Tendring during or at the end of the war.

The exhibition also includes a creative response of the collection from local community groups, schools, songwriter Tracie Fox and artist Alison Stockmarr
