“It has now been a number of years that Mr Robertshaw has been meeting with my students, explaining the intricacies of the Battle of the Somme and a soldier’s life in the trenches. Mr Robertshaw’s enthusiasm for the subject is contagious and, each year, my students come back inspired , with a concrete understanding of the subject. Mr Robertshaw does not simply lecture – he allows students to touch, hear, and see the war – through objects, video and activities. I cannot think of a better way to experience World War One”.

A Soldier’s Life – trench tour

“It was a fabulous talk, delivered with passion and verve, and we were delighted to host you. The boys who came for the dinner were thrilled to have spoken to you . I hope we can keep this relationship going in the future.”

“I’ve never been met with a more positive response to the question : “How was the lecture?”  The boys were overflowing with praise for the speaker and all really enjoyed it. Brilliant event.”
