Last Post: Remembering the First World War - flagship exhibition

Coalbrookdale Museum of Iron

11 April 2014 - 27 March 2015

Last Post: Remembering the First World War explores the effect of the events of 1914-18 on the Post Office and its people and the contribution of postal communications to the war effort.

The cataclysmic events of the First World War had an unprecedented effect on the Post Office and its people. This flagship exhibition, 100 years on from the outbreak of the First World War, explores the vital role of the Post Office during the conflict through the stories of postal workers fighting in the trenches, relaying news of the fallen on the Home Front or persevering to get communications to and from battlefields. Alongside wartime objects and letters, emotive material from Shropshire-born First World War officer and poet Wilfred Owen will be on display.
