Pupils' wartime history lesson.

LIVERPOOL schoolchildren visited the Museum of Liverpool Life to help launch an appeal to gather wartime memories.

Adam Watt and Becky Johnston were among pupils from Wellesbourne infants school, Norris Green, to see gas masks and an incendiary bomb.

A major new exhibition of Liverpool At War will be held at the Museum of Liverpool Life and the Merseyside Maritime Museum in July 2003, focusing on the impact of World War II on the city's people.

Curator Simon Jones is keen to get in touch with former air raid wardens, members of the fire service, ambulance drivers, rescue workers, and anyone else who was involved in war work.

Anyone who can help Simon build up the exhibition should call 0151-478 4063.
