“Who would have thought that I would get to cock and shoot a Lee Enfield rifle in my classroom! Andy Robertshaw’s experience was amazing and I would really recommend a visit to help you learn about the real war.”   Patrick

“Mr Robertshaw brought the whole four years of WW1 to life in one morning! I never imagined how much equipment one soldier would have to carry….It was amazing and we all learned a lot. Mr Robertshaw knows a lot of information and makes it funny and memorable!   Amelie

The First World War Experience

“Thank you for a superb session. After a heavy morning of classes, it had to be something good to keep everyone’s attention. It was surprising how much some of them already knew about the trenches but you gave such detail and so graphically that it was all new. I’ve never seen a child so excited as when one of them worked out everything about your grandfather.

I hope we can arrange another talk before too long.”
