Exhibition: Exmouth Commemorating 1914

1 May 2014 - 31 October 2014

Exmouth Museum is commemorating 1914 with a special exhibition this year which runs until the end of October.

As well as showing various artefacts we have:

Faces of the Great War – photographs from the period of Exmouth men who took part. 

Beacon School Logbook – extracts from the Boys School logbook covering the War years and detailing the 31 former pupils who were killed in the War together with our own detailed research on these men.

Flying Ace – Douglas Carbery MC DFC was credited with 6 Air to Air combat victories. He survived the War and had a long and distinguished military career. We are exhibiting his badges and medal ribbons and photographs taken by Carbery of himself and colleagues and of downed German machines. We also have a model of a Royal Aircraft Factory BE 2c similar to one that he trained on and later flew on the Western Front.
