To Flanders Fields, 1917, Exhibition


Aaron Pegram

  • Craig,

    Congratulations on a stunning exhibition. Your team has successfully captured the bitterness of the fighting in Flanders in 1917, and have presented it in a very smart and sophisticated combination of objects, photos and film. Good use was made of the temporary exhibition space, and I particularly liked the layout of the chronology along the outer perimeter of the gallery, with larger objects in the middle.

    There was just so many objects which I have read about - such as the Luger pistol from Jacka's Bullecourt patrol, and the bloodstained stretcher was very powerful. It was also good to see the presence of some of the service units which were so essential to front line operations.

    Well done,
