About 100 people attended the launch of a book of art, poetry and stories of the First World War.
The launch of At the Going Down of the Sun, at Savage Studios, featured a short film and a talk from the book’s Fenland authors and artists Richard Savage and Marian Savill.
The book contains original art work, contemporary posters, photographs, artwork, songs and poems set in the context of the Great War.
MP Steve Barclay said: “This is a wonderful, thought provoking and moving body of artwork that through its imagery and texture leaves a lasting impression.”
After the presentation, Mrs Savill said, “We’ve been overwhelmed with the response to both the artwork and the book.

“It was standing room only at the presentations which was absolutely fantastic to see and we are very grateful for the support and encouragement we have received.”
Mr Savage added: “There is already a wealth of First World War information and books available but we very much hope that our artist’s perspective approach will add something unique.”
