Imperial War Museum, London, UK

Below: Souvenirs kept by soldiers from the front line of WW1. Items were often destroyed personal items, others were items made from used bullets and scraps of metal. My favourite is the miniature hat welded from the cap of a bullet.

Leather US army flight jacket with hand painted motifs. 

Straw woven boots worn to protect WW1 soldiers from the bitterly cold winter.
