Falklands War veteran Simon Weston opens Swansea Museum trench exhibition
A FALKLANDS War veteran has opened an exhibition about a much older conflict in Swansea.
Simon Weston visited Swansea Museum to launch the First World War trench exhibition, which includes a full-size replica trench, as would have been made by soldiers in the 1914 to 1918 conflict.

The exhibit has been organised by curator Garethe El Tawab and staff members Paul Eivjjrida and Glenda Thomas. Read more HERE
