Description

The Liddle Collection includes the personal papers of well over 4,000 people who lived through the First World War, and approximately 500 who experienced the Second World War. The Museum Objects Collection forms part of the Liddle Collection and comprises the 3D objects donated to Peter Liddle in the course of his research. Mainly comprised of objects dating from the First World War, the collection also contains a selection of items from the Boer War and the Second World War. Many of the objects are associated with manuscript holdings in the Liddle Collection and where this is the case it is indicated in the handlist entry. The collection contains many delicate and unique items and can only be consulted by prior appointment and at the archivist's discretion.
