Friends School, Lisburn - World War I Project

Post by Christopher » 07 Dec 2008, 05:53

The World War 1 research project - Friends School Lisburn is a great site. Read about the History Department at FSL being given an old rusted tin box that had been retrieved from a skip in the mid 1990s. It contained thirty eight photographs and a series of over ninety letters and post cards dated between the 23rd September 1915 and the 11th August 1917 which were addressed to a lady in Belfast. http://www.friendsschoollisburn.org.uk/ ... agehead=db

Keep you eyes open at car boot sales and the like, as well as having an occasional look in a skip or two, as there may well be a few more of those tin boxes full of valuable historical material.
