Year 9 Trench Trip

The first group of Year 9 GCSE students travelled to the newly created World War I Trench system at the County Showgrounds, Detling. There we were greeted by historian Andrew Robertshaw and Great War re-enactor Phil Hodges. The two took the students through their paces from getting them into marching order and battle drill to looking at what a soldier in World War I wore and had as equipment through to walking through the trenches.

A great day out and even the poor weather conditions early on did not dampen spirits!
