About 1,000 people visited Boston’s Drill Hall at the weekend to discover the history of the First World War.

The exhibition featured displays of weapons, a reconstruction of a trench and talks from experts, as well as the personal items left behind by Bostonians who fought on the front line.

Items on show included a jumper made in the trenches by Andrew Dickinson, of Leverton. He used needles made from barbed wire and wool from underpants sent by the Red Cross.
