Brandon’s Armistice Centenary booklet will be available from Brandon Heritage Centre from Saturday.
The 16 page A4 colour booklet includes information about those who fought in the Great War and what took place in the town between 1914 and 1918.
Funded by a £1,000 from Tesco’s Bags of Help scheme, the booklet has been researched and created by local researcher Darren Norton, and 2,000 copies have been printed.
