The Front Line - Trenches & Dressing Stations

We are indebted to 208 Field Hospital for their re-creation of a 1914 trench system and WWI Casualty Clearing Station in the LMI car park. Visitors were also able to see a 2014 Field Dressing Station and modern military vehicles, and listen to various demonstrations and re-enactments on the theme of military medicine past and present.
