Do you have a story you would like to share about the impact of the First World War on Harrow and its people?

If so, Harrow Council is asking people to get in touch with stories or pictures or memorabilia to be included as part of a unique World War One exhibition at Harrow Museum in Headstone Manor, Pinner View, Harrow .

From this year to 2018, it marks the centenary of the First World War and almost 3,000 men from Harrow served in the war.

Over the next four years Harrow Museum will commemorate each centenary with an exhibition dedicated to some of the extraordinary tales of local people and to look at how the war shaped Harrow.

Portfolio holder for community, culture and resident engagement Councillor Sue Anderson said: “The First World War had a significant impact on Harrow and its residents and by sharing the stories of ordinary people during the war it gives a chance for future generations to come a learn about the impact of war and how it affected Harrow.”

You can email your stories to harrow.museum@harrow.gov.uk or by call 0208 863 6720.
