AN exhibition looks at what happened to hundreds of Millom, Furness and North Lancashire soldiers after fighting ended in the First World War ended on November 11 in 1918.

For The Fallen can be seen at Lancaster City Museum from Tuesday to Sunday until March 24 and draws on the collection of the King’s Own Royal Lancaster Regiment.

It describes where the regiment’s battalions were on Armistice Day and tells how many were then sent to Cologne in Germany as part of the Army of Occupation.

Many more were on their way home – as casualties from hospitals or as prisoners of war.

The displays also feature the story of Victoria Cross winner Tom Fletcher Mayson, of Silecroft, near Millom.
