MORE ABOUT THIS TRIP

The context of the British sector of Western Front and the theatre of war in Flanders and northern France

Significance for medical treatment of the nature of the terrain and problems of the transport and communications infrastructure

Conditions requiring medical treatment on the Western Front, including the problems of ill health arising from the trench environment

UK: The British sector of the Western Front,1914­-18

Injuries, treatment and the trenches

The system of transport: stretcher bearers, horse and motor ambulances. The stages of treatment areas: aid post and field ambulance, dressing station, casualty clearing station, base hospital

The most effective way to develop the knowledge and understanding of Medicine on the Western Front, including injuries, treatment and the trenches, is to visit the battlefields personally on our 'The British sector of the Western Front,1914-18: injuries, treatment and the trenches’ tour. However, at Time Travel we understand that this is not achievable for all schools and affordable for all school children.

 

Understanding this, we are delighted to offer a tour which very much mirrors that, one that is exclusive to the injuries, treatment and trenches on the Western Front, and based right here in the UK. Spread over either a 1 or 2-day period, this cost-effective method still allows a great opportunity for your pupils to delve into the history, and enhance their knowledge and understanding of the injuries, treatment and trenches on the British sector of the Western Front.

The significance of the Western Front for experiments in surgery and medicine
