Object of the Month

Object of the Month

Our Object of the Month series offers an opportunity to explore an object from the museum’s collections or exhibitions in more detail. Every month, a GWR object will be featured on this page, providing an insight in to an interesting  piece from the museum.

 


To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War, November’s Object of the Month is a GWR Roll of Honour.

 

The first official GWR Roll of Honour was installed on Platform 1 at Paddington Station in late 1915. The Rolls of Honour became a focal point for remembrance services held to commemorate ArmisticeDay.
