Representatives from Serbian Embassy in London visit ‘A Dorset Woman at War’ exhibition at Dorchester Museum.

Last week staff at Dorset County Museum were delighted to welcome special visitors from the Embassy of the Republic of Serbia. Emilija Marinkov, Second Secretary of Political Affairs, Press and Cultural Affairs was joined by Zvezdana Popovic when they travelled from London to view the current exhibition A Dorset Woman at War.

The exhibition, which runs until 15th November, recognises a remarkable Dorset woman, Mabel Stobart, who played an important role in Serbia during the First World War.

Jon Murden, director of Dorset County Museum said, “We were thrilled to meet Emilija and Zvezdana from the Serbian Embassy. Mabel Stobart is still regarded as a heroine in Serbia for the part she played during the First World War, and it’s great that they could come down from London to see the exhibition for themselves.”
