Valerie Grigg presents research to Helston museum group

Great to visit my oldest school friend, Martine Knight, and the Helston Museum World War One group, which is working on plans for a 'Women in War' exhibition later this year.
Our own Valerie Grigg, who lent so much to Heart of Conflict and has a wonderful collection of objects and memorabilia, came to talk about her research on women during World War One. Her grandmother worked as a 'bal maiden' (female mine employee) through those years.
Valerie kindly left her research as a starting point for the Helston team.
