Embroidered cards, known as WW1 silks were sold to soldiers as souvenirs during WW1. The cards were sewn by women in France and Belgium, and then sent home by soldiers serving overseas. The cards are being catalogued by the museum in preparation for the major exhibition 1914:When the World Changed Forever, which opens on June 28 next year.
