Do you have any items related to the First World War? Would you like to share and preserve these objects and stories for future generations? Bring your diaries, letters, photographs, memoirs, objects or stories about your family’s experience in the war to Crosspoint at the University of Plymouth to be recorded and added to our freely-available, online archive.
