An old box hidden away in a Rostrevor attic reveals incredible stories of life and lose during the First World War.

The Box, written by Carlo Grebler, reveals the incredible story of Olive Swanzy, a nurse from Co. Down who served during World War I. During her time in service, whilst caring for those on the front lines of battle, Olive kept autograph books documenting her time and those she encountered.

Within their covers were poems, jokes, comments, cartoons and sketches by wounded soldiers in Olive's care. Alongside her own beautiful paintings, these books tell a fascinating story of very real people during extraordinary times.
