Quotes

Dr Stephen Lloyd, curator of the Derby collection, commented: "This centenary of the Great War gives us all the opportunity to remember the sacrifices made and remember the part that the Earl of Derby played during this time. It is a one-off opportunity to see the private archive collection of one of the war’s pivotal figures."
"And they don't have the emotion connection returned service women have to the memorial."
"This is something that has really caught fire," she said. "Usually members of the audience are quite well versed. ... They can lead the questions and answer other questions."
