A special presentation of the First World War was given at Boston College to mark the centenary of the start of the conflict.

Such was its popularity that seats for the November show sold out a week in advance.

Members of the Boston and district branch of the Royal British Legion, together with Uniformed Public Service students at the college and air cadets of 141 (Boston) Squadron gave a presentation on the local impact of the 1914-1918 war.

Many local men fought and died in the war . Other events to hit the local headlines included Boston trawlermen being captured at sea by the Germans, and a Zeppelin dropping seven bombs across the borough.
