ST.PETERSBURG, January 16. /TASS/. Peter Jackson, the director of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings trilogies, has sent two replicas of World War I uniforms of the British army to a museum near St.Petersburg, a museum curator said on Friday.
"When the director proposed presenting us with some items from his private collection, we selected uniforms of the British and Scottish regiments, which can be used in our installations," Alexey Rogatnev, the curator of the Tsarskoye Selo museum, told TASS.
He said that Jackson, a World War I history enthusiast, had sent to Russia some 50 items, including full-dress uniforms, headwear, shoulder straps and field gear.
The items will go on display on May 18, International Museum Day, Rogatnev added.
After finishing his work on The Hobbit trilogy, Jackson announced plans to help launch a World War I museum in Wellington, the capital of New Zealand.
