Kate Maxey of Spennymoor: exhibition story boards

Nursing sister awarded the Military Medal

This set of ten story boards was produced as part of a First World War Centenary commemorative exhibition entitled ‘Spennymoor’s Great War’, held at the Bob Abley Gallery, Spennymoor Town Hall, 2 – 30 August 2014.

John Grainger and John Banham carried out additional research to supplement the original records and information provided by Kate Maxey’s three great nieces. Once the exhibition had ended a digital copy was passed to the Durham at War project so that the remarkable story of Kate Maxey could be shared with a wider audience online.
