First World War

The Wilson holds important archives from the First World War. These include propaganda posters, postcards from the Front Line, albums from local Voluntary Aid Detachment (VAD) hospitals and stories of individual people, notably the Wilson family, revealed in their personal correspondence and possessions.  These give us a valuable insight into the part Cheltenham played in the conflict abroad and at home in the town.

We are currently working on new digital displays for 2018 – watch this space! In the meantime, you can explore our 2014 Gloucestershire Remembers WWI project.
