What War Meant to Miles

This is an online selection from the comprehensive re-display of the Village’s War Museum Collection which includes graphic panels, informative texts, mini-stories and labels which organise the extensive and significant collections and enable visitor access by presenting a grand narrative of ‘War Journey’. We follow the personal and local stories of Miles and District people across various conflicts using themes to present and then draw out local detail about each stage of the journey. Audio and Video make this a multi-media experience.

This graphic panel greets visitors as they move from the entry point past content about Miles before the First World War, the national call to arms, enlistment and training and as they move through the space. It shows a large group of men in the desert and is organised under the theme ‘waiting to engage’.
