A new exhibition has opened at Mansfield Museum exploring the role played by women during the First World War.

It is the first of three exhibits set to take place at the Leeming Street venue throughout 2014 - to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the start of the Great War in 1914.

Entitled ‘Everybody’s Darling’ - the exhibition focuses on the thousands of women who left civilian life to work in field hospitals, often just yards from the front line, in France and around the world.
