What happened to these artefacts?
« on: Sunday 24 February 19 23:15 GMT (UK) »
While searching local authority records for something entirely different I came across this minute -

10/7/1919  War Trophies

A letter from the Secretary of War offering -  1 helmet, 1 German wire cutter, 1 Austrian entrenching tool, 18 German rifles, 1 German carbine, 1 body armour, 1 bayonet, 1 Turkish bayonet and 1 German water bottle - allocated to this district and offered to the council for safe care and custody.
6 voted for and 8 against acceptance

Assuming that some local authorities did accept does anyone know what happened to all of these in later years?
