Temporary Exhibition at Cornwall Services

Touring exhibitions on the Forgotten Wrecks project were installed 44 installations across 42 venues in 5 counties between 2014 and 2018, and were seen by over 503,000 people. Each of the south coast counties had a personalised exhibition, with information on wrecks in the local area. Each exhibition comprised three general panels on the project and the maritime First World War, and two county-specific panels, as well as a case of artefacts and, in some venues, a case displaing naval uniforms. 

Feedback on the exhibitions includes:

"Very interested to read about HMHS Asturias. I travelled in her replacement, HMT Asturias to Honk Kong from Southampton in 1959."

"Husband's grandfather went down with Formidable. Nice to see it remembered."

"Thanks to the sacrifice of our forefathers we have a future - thanks to [the exhibition] we can see the past."
