April – December 2014
This exhibition commemorates the centenary of the outbreak of The First World War, known until the Second World War as ‘The Great War’. The War was so enormous and so devastating that it was believed that it would be a ‘War to end all Wars’.
The exhibition tells the story of the War, especially the ways in which it affected the men, women, children and places of the Wycombe District. Although Wycombe District did not exist at that time, the exhibition covers the area that was to become Wycombe District.
