Medicine on the Western Front Workshop

On Wednesday 26th January, Year 11 were lucky enough to partake in a history workshop put on by David and Richard from Frontline Living History who brought with them their extensive First World War battlefield artefacts and replicas.

They shared their knowledge with our Year 11 historians who will be using it in their upcoming mock and in their final GCSE History Paper 1: Medicine Through Time.

Richard and David really brought to life the experiences of soldiers in the trenches on the Western Front by passing around helmets, weapons and even recreating the smell of mustard gas.

Private Orton made an excellent First World War soldier and, when he was injured on the battlefield, it was a good job the pals in his battalion: Lewis, Harrison, Jayden and Jakub were there to get him down the chain of evacuation.

Thank you to David and Richard for sharing your time and knowledge with our students.
