Pick&Mix Online – we need your help: please can you publicise this to 10 people each and send us a Salisbury related image?
Sergeant James Smith grew up in Salisbury and went into RAF signals during WWII. He was posted to the Far East and spent his 21st birthday crossing the Atlantic on route to Singapore, where he built radar stations. On 8 March 1942 he was captured and became a Japanese prisoner of war. Read his story and see his artefacts in the Pick & Mix exhibition.
We still need more people to get engaged with our online Pick & Mix exhibition – which is packed full of wonderful objects and photos relating the history of Salisbury. It is simple and free to set up an Instagram account via http://instagram.com/ so that you can view the exhibition in full – and attached are some step by step instructions for how to use Instagram once you are on the site.
If you do not have an Instagram account don’t worry – you can view all of the exhibition objects via the website: https://pickandmixtsm.wixsite.com/info.
However you won’t be able to ‘like’ objects, write comments, or read or watch personal video comments about the objects so please have a go at setting up an Instagram account to join in.
