The Oxfam music and book shop in Huntingdon is looking to celebrate the centenary of the end of the Great War by appealing to members of the public.

The shop is asking for members of the public to donate pictures of family members or friends from Huntingdonshire who fought in the First World War.

The pictures will be displayed in the front of the shop.

The shop is asking people to e-mail photos of their relatives or bring them into the shop, in High Street, for staff to make a copy and put them on display.

Bookshop manager, Geoffrey Stalker said: “We really want to encourage the public to get involved and engage with the display. They can be both male and female and don’t have to live in the country anymore. If people are worried about bringing in old photos, we are able to take a copy of it in the shop so they can have the original copy back.”
