Real Ideas Organisation (RIO) is giving people a chance to view a special collection of World War I artefacts as part of a special centenary event in Liskeard, and avid collectors are invited to bring their treasured World War I items in for a more in-depth discussion with a field expert.
This special event is being offered as part of the approaching World War I centenary. Ian Moore, a keen collector of World War I memorabilia, will be giving people the chance to come forward with their artefacts to find out the fascinating history behind them. Ian first started collecting memorabilia at the age of 11 after his Grandfather gave him the medals he’d earned in the First World War.
Josh Worley, RIO Apprentice is helping to run the event. He says, “This is a fantastic opportunity to commemorate the First World War. It should be an amazing day with the opportunity to also write a letter to The Unknown Soldier as part of the Imperial War Museum’s commemoration.”
The event is taking place at Real Ideas Organisation’s base at 26 Fore Street in Liskeard on 2nd and 4th August from 10am until 4pm.
