Work is coming to an end in the next few weeks on building a new war museum in Carlisle including a reconstructed First World War trench.
Cumbria's Museum of Military Life at Carlisle Castle will feature the trench along with other exhibits reflecting the wars and conflicts the Kings Own Royal Border regiment has fought in.
As well as the trench there will be displays of artefacts such as a bible with a German bullet from WW1- the bible saved the life of local soldier Private F Peil - and an original Lee Enfield rifle from 1914.
The museum is moving from its original home in another part of the castle to the Alma block which is where the regimental institute was based.
The new museum will also feature a section of troop train, an assault glider from the Second World War and field guns.
The museum is going to open late September and is all thanks to a Heritage Lottery Grant of £1.4 million.
After this week's commemorations of the start of the First World War the museum and the regiment plan to mark other important events from 1914-1918 that affected the KOBR.
Thousands of people across our region came out last night to remember and celebrate those who serves in the First World War.
