Soldiers’ Stories: The Men of the Manchesters

theatre

This new exhibition offers an opportunity to see key objects from the Manchester Regiment collection, many of which have never previously been on display.
 
Spanning conflicts such as the Second Boer War (1899-1902), the World Wars as well as national service, they include uniforms, medals, souvenirs, drums, trophies and badges, all of which tell personal stories.
 
Among them are a food tin on which Private Wilkinson engraved images documenting his time as a Japanese prisoner of war, fragments of the regimental colours carried by James Hulton Clutterbuck before he was killed in the Crimea, and the medals of Private Fred Finucane, a First World War boy soldier from Ashton who died of dysentery sailing to Egypt.
