A Barrier Daily Truth archive book from the first years of World War One has been found by a local woman doing a spot of spring cleaning.

Pat Borlace said she found it in a green plastic bag while cleaning out her cupboards last week. 

Mrs Borlace said she thought it had been in the family since the late 1960s, although it is a mystery how it got there from the BDT Archives Room. 

The large book bound in a red cover contains the newspapers published in 1914 and 1915.

This special piece of history is now on display at the Silver City Show in the Pavilion.
