Box Primary School uncovers hidden lives

Box Primary school children have spent the summer term exploring their local history and uncovering the lives of local men who fought in the trenches.  The children discovered Cecil Lambert, a volunteer who spent four years away from home and who charted his experiences through extensive letters deposited at the Wiltshire and Swindon History Centre. Read more about this project on the Box People and Places blog.

Through the assistance of the History Centre they were able to trace the depositor of these papers, Anna Grayson, who still lives in Box and was delighted to come into school and talk to the children.
