There’s a final call going out to people across Morley to search their homes for World War I memorabilia to take to a roadshow event in the town this afternoon.

Organisers of Morley 1914, a committee of volunteers organising events throughout the year, will be holding the Antiques Roadshow-style event, WWI Local History Roadshow, in Morley Town Hall from 3pm-7pm. People are being asked to take any memorabilia they have along.

Morley town events manager Rachael Kennedy said: “I really would like to get the point across that we are encouraging people to search at home and with families for anything related to World War I, whether that be letters, postcards, medals, artefacts or family stories told and passed down by generations. We do not intend to keep these valuable possessions but simply records them for future generations to learn from.”
