Today we had a visit from Lewis from the museum. He brought along artefacts for us to see and handle. We learned about the uniform that soldiers wore in WWII and got to try them on. We also were able to handle a decommissioned sten gun from WWII. These guns were very cheap to make (about 50p) but sometimes didn’t work too well enjoyed by all. We were also given real documents about a soldier and we had to use them to find out all about him and his service in the Gordon Highlanders. The session was very interesting and informative.
