Working through Paddy Bradley's photo collection

In Redruth this afternoon looking through the amazing photo collection amassed over the years by Paddy Bradley, a Redruth man through and through. He even played rugby for the Reds in his time.
Paddy helped with our Heart of Conflict exhibition at the Cornish Studies Library, Redruth, earlier this year and has many photos of Redruth Wesleyan Chapel Young Men's Bible Class.
No fewer than 150 young men signed up for the class after the start of World War One and we have copies of some of the letters they wrote back to the Chapel. These will go on display at our two 'pop up' exhibitions in Camborne and Redruth to mark Remembrance Day this year. This is part of Heart of Conflict, our work marking the centenary of World War One in Cornwall.
