Exhibition at Cornish Studies Library, Redruth

Embroidered handkerchief belonging to family of Jago Ford

We started work on Heart of Conflict, looking at the World War One years in Cornwall, in 2014. We worked with local groups – in particular Camborne Guides and Praze W1 – to uncover previously untold stories.

Our first exhibition was at the Cornish Studies Library, Redruth, when these stories were presented for the first time.

We were so pleased to receive flowers from a mystery donor at the opening, in memory of all the Cornish soldiers who had been killed.

All the stories can be read on the Heart of Conflict website.
