All schools should be teaching their pupils about WW1 it needs to be compulsory as part of History lessons and this show is an excellent example of what children should listen to and learn about the what their families ‘Their ancestor suffered’. My mothers father had shrapnel in his brain & never properly recovered from his war wounds & his two brothers Arthur & Samuel (18 year old twins) were blown to pieces at the Somme.Diane, April 14th 2020
This is an excellent show of the horrors of WW1 upsetting to listen to but ‘necessary’. Thank you to all the actors & producers for the compassion shown.
