Centenary Stitches exhibition at Kew

The National Archives at Kew, England, is hosting an exhibition on site entitled Centenary Stitches. The following is a short description:

From the village of Thimbleby to the Western Front, two brothers and their story are brought to life in community film Tell Them of Us - a tribute to their duty and the impact on those they left behind.

This display of clothing from the film tells the story of how an international army of knitters was created almost by accident, not only to help costume the film, but also to reveal the extraordinary range of knitted items produced back home for men in the trenches.

Centenary Stitches will be displayed on-site at Kew.
