Former BBC correspondent and Dorset resident, Kate Adie, has opened an exciting new addition to Dorchester’s Keep Military Museum, the only military museum for the regiments of both Dorset and Devon.

The new Trench Exhibition is an interactive learning resource that has been built with part of a Heritage Lottery grant of more than £50,000.

Over the next four years the exhibition will change to reflect how things developed on the Front as the World War One centenary continues. The focus is on promoting a greater understanding of The Great War, whilst commemorating the contribution and sacrifice of the people of Devon and Dorset.
