A World War One exhibition at Southwell Minster was launched with special guests on 16th May.

Iraq war veteran, Captain Ibrar Ali MC, was an honorary guest at a gala dinner in support of the charity, Walking with the Wounded, of which Prince Harry is patron. Captain Ali was joined by fellow war veteran Captain Harry Parker, who was injured whilst serving in Afganistan.

The exhibition runs until 15th June.
