A Ceremonial Sword and Letters from WW1

A pupil in Year 9 was able to bring in a ceremonial sword used in WW1 for the project group to look at, as well as some letters. The sword belonged to his great-great-grandfather, while the letters where from his great-great-uncle, his grandfather’s brother. One of the letters detailed how much his great-great-grandfather was to be paid and what allowance he was to receive for his uniform.
