A new project telling the story of Dorset through the Great War and it's brave soldiers who fought in it, is after your stories.

Dorchester's Keep Military Museum is putting together a gallery and learning area to mark a hundred years since the war broke out.

They've received over £50,000 from the Heritage Lottery Fund to create the unique exhibition.

The museum say the project will focus on promoting a greater understanding of World War 1, whilst commemorating the contribution and sacrifice of the people from the Dorset regiment.

Charles Cooper from the Military Keep says: " We want to hear stories of your family and to help with your research and community activities. We will provide volunteering, training and educational opportunities. "

" The museum will be part of an education focus group dedicated to supporting schools in the area - Dorset - and online ".
