A spokesman commented: "We invite veteran servicewomen to come forward to participate in the event and contribute material for our exhibition.

"We invite families of late servicewomen to share their personal stories and memorabilia with the community."

Anyone with photos or documents that could be exhibited is asked to consider getting involved with the pop-up museum, before the deadline of May 31.

The spokesman added: "We are also looking for veteran servicewomen who are happy to be interviewed by local school students as part of the pop-up museum history project."
