Exhibition to mark 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War

  • It includes photographs, films and different items on display and will continue until 11 November in the John Mackintosh Hall

Thursday marked the opening of a special exhibition at the John Mackintosh Hall to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I. It includes photographs, films and different items on display, some of which have been loaned by members of the public. The exhibition will continue until Armistice Day, 11 November.

Gibraltar played an important role in World War I and dozens of Gibraltarians were among those who lost their lives fighting for their country. On 11 November, the government will be projecting 'The Biggest Tommy in the World' on the north face of the Rock, and it is also collaborating with a new book about Gibraltar during the war.
