Decorative items made by soldiers, prisoners of war and civilians.

Trench art refers to objects made from the by-products of 20th and 21st century warfare, but is most widely associated with the First World War.

Compton Verney is showing some of the highlights from a Warwickshire-based private collection of Trench Art. It includes decorated shell cases, carved sections of a propeller, rifle cartridges and embroidered flour sacks. Created in over 20 different countries, they are a reminder of the global scale of the conflict.
