Residents with memories of the friendly invasion of Warkworth by US troops during World War II are being urged to share their stories.
The Warkworth Museum is keen to hear from any locals who lived through this era.
Their stories will be recorded and used as part of a special exhibition later this year, which will mark the 80th anniversary of the US “occupation”.
The museum is also collecting US memorabilia for the display. As part of anniversary celebrations, work has started on repairs to two servicemen’s huts.
Those involved in the project include, from left, Judy Waters, Sarah Smith, museum manager Victoria Joule and Glenda Peake.
You can contact them about loaning memorabilia or telling your stories at email@example.com or on 09 425 7093.
