Maritime Belfast were delighted to sponsor a joint community project delivered in partnership by Titanic Belfast Ltd, the Public Record Office of Northern Ireland (PRONI), East Belfast Partnership and North Belfast Partnership. The project marked the anniversary of World War 1.

A group of Senior Citizens from North and East Belfast attended a session in PRONI where they examined a number of original letters sent home to Northern Ireland from soldiers fighting in World War I, viewed the PRONI exhibition on the war, along with many of the war related documents that PRONI have.

The group were also treated to a lovely Afternoon Tea in the Titanic Suite in Titanic Belfast, along with dramatized performances by Titanic Belfast staff of some of the letters from the trenches.
