100th Anniversary of World War 1
The 100th Anniversary of World War 1 features the stories of local men who fought and lost their lives in the Great War, and of those who survived.
It showcases Regiments which passed through the village on their way to France and those whose regiments encamped here using Bramshott as their permanent base, including the presence of the Canadian Expeditionary Forces at Bramshott Camp.
It covers the impact of the war on the district of Bramshott & Liphook against a background of National events.
Featuring local people and their involvement in the wider aspects of the War, many personal belongings and original documents and papers have been brought into the Heritage Centre by residents of Liphook and District, including medals, lovingly saved.
