Commemoration of World War One

To commemorate the end of World War One, students and staff from Strood Academy took part in the Lost Helmet project in conjunction with the Guildhall Museum.
The aim of the project is to bring to life the sheer scale of the loss to Medway caused by the war.  Staff and students took the opportunity to handle a replica helmet and be photographed wearing it.  Each image will be linked with the the name of a lost Medway serviceman, so connecting the past to the present.  The images will be collated and displayed by the Medway Archive Centre.
