Would you like to meet our tommy, Henry Fairhurst?
Students share an hour in the life of a soldier from a Pals Battalion, Private Henry Fairhurst (played by a professional actor), as he talks about his experience of life in the trenches. Students are invited to chat with Henry during the session. Was it really all mud and blood in the trenches, or did Private Fairhurst see some benefits in what he was doing?
This session supports schools studying Challenges to Britain and the wider world, 1901 to the present day.
