Couple lends "trench art' paper knife to Heart of Conflict

 A contribution collected yesterday from the St Aubyn Arms, Praze. Royston Broad, who with his wife Delia has contributed to our Heart of Conflict exhibition on World War One, brought in this paper knife made from a shell case.
We will put it on display with the rest of the exhibition at the Cornish Studies Library, Redruth.

Royston and Delia have lent the medals of Delia's cousin, Frank Johns, who died in 1915.  They knew little about Frank, apart from the fact that he was killed in France. Our researcher George Harris discovered the background.  Heart of Conflict is open until Friday 27 February, 2015 (closed on Wednesday).
