Exhibition to open at KOSB Museum
An exhibition to highlight the social, political, health and economic issues that arose post-First World War for ex-service personnel will open at the King's Own Scottish Borderers' Regimental Museum in Berwick on Saturday.
From 1920 until 1937, poverty, homelessness and unemployment dominated the political discourse.
Unemployment rose to three million and many ex-servicemen and their families were forced into emigration by absolute poverty.
The Aftermath exhibition was constructed from official and unofficial documents, hardship letters and financial assistance applications from ex-servicemen. The exhibition highlights the tragic plight of ex-servicemen, war disabled ex-servicemen and their families in post-war Britain.
The exhibition runs until November 11, then tours throughout Scotland and other parts of the UK.
