BANKFIELD MUSEUM, HALIFAX, STARTS WORK ON WWI COMMEMORATION

Work is to start at a museum in West Yorkshire on a display to commemorate the 100th anniversary of World War I. Bankfield Museum in Halifax is to close a gallery for refurbishment and start research work with local groups. The Great War Gallery will open in 2014 and highlight people's stories and the effect of the war on the region. The area produced large numbers of uniforms and blankets for British forces, as well as the design for the steel helmet used by soldiers. Richard Macfarlane, museums manager, said: "This will not be just the story of the war and the military. "It is about the effect the war had on Calderdale and the effect Calderdale had on the war." The project will run from 2014 to 2018 to mirror the conflict of 1914-18. Calderdale Council's Museum Service has received £98,800 from the Heritage Lottery Fund for the project.
