July 11-12 2015 – Regimental Museum of the Royal Welsh at Brecon (10:00am to 4:00pm). Members of the public are asked to bring any photographs, postcards or stereo-views showing Egypt or Palestine dating from the period of the First World War [1914-1918]. Entry to the roadshow is free; standard admission applies to the museum so entrants should state that they are visiting the roadshow. Includes a free project talk on Friday 10 July at 7pm at the museum.

About our Roadshows

We hope that people will come along to our roadshows with albums of photos, or individual prints taken by their ancestors during their service in Egypt or Palestine.  We are equally interested to see the postcards which they may have bought in those countries and sent home, or other photographs which they may have bought as souvenirs.  We are interested in pictures of the ancient monuments and towns and cities as well as military subjects – if in doubt bring it along! Any information on the date and details of service would be very welcome.

Images will be digitally recorded to form part of an online archive of images of Egypt and Palestine, becoming a perpetual online learning resource offering new views of archaeological sites, military installations and cities as they appeared during the war.
