To commemorate the ending of hostilities in WWI on November 11th 1918, the Mid Sussex District Council gave East Grinstead
Museum a grant to curate a touring exhibition showing the impact the war had on the town and some of the nearby villages.
Each community researched life before, during and after the war. The results were then printed onto three banners for each place.
After an initial evening launch in June held on the anniversary of the signing of the Treaty of Versailles, each village has displayed its own banners, locally. On September 18th all 18 banners will return to the museum to be on public display for the first time, together. They will remain in the museum until November 3rd, when they will return to their villages in time for Remembrance Sunday.
