The Nottinghamshire Great War Centenary exhibition will focus on the contribution made by civilians to the war effort and is planned to open at Castle Museum in Nottingham in August 2014 to mark the start of hostilities.

Organisers are appealing to local historians and the public to volunteer as guides or offer any objects and stories that could help to tell the county's story of WW1.

Military historian and museum curator, Major John Cotterill says, "We want our exhibition to be a living exhibition...where people can come in and ask about their Great War ancestors and we can produce the photographs, the maps and the information that brings their query to life."
