Gilbert & Gordon: ‘Then all the world could see how in love we are’
Turning love letters into a commemorative diamond
Oswestry Museum have obtained love letters written during WW2, showing that love between two men could survive the army and wartime postings. As part of Heritage Open Days 2017, and to commemorate love of any kind, people are invited to write a love letter which will be combined with many others and transformed into a commemorative diamond.
