Gunnersbury Park Museum is dedicated to curating and telling the stories of the people of Hounslow and Ealing but is currently closed for its major refurbishment. Meanwhile it is hosting this exhibition to commemorate the centenary of the First World War, which should be of interest to the diverse communities of Ealing and Hounslow which the Museum serves.
