Tending the Wounds: WWI Medics & Medicine

About Tending the Wounds: WWI Medics & Medicine

The Evacuation Chain at 2pm Historian Simon Walker walks us through the stages of casualty evacuation – from battlefield to trench dressing station to base hospital and back home.
 
Pilots in Training: Medical examiners tested aspiring pilots for balance, coordination and reaction time. How will you do? Test yourself and improve your skills in our Wings to War WWI flight simulator. Earn your wings..... or be sent back to the trenches!

Poultices & Potions: Discover the wonderful (and sometimes unusual) herbal remedies used on the home front and on the battlefield. Give it a go and make your own!

WWI Medical Mission: Take part in a medical mission around the trenches to discover the new medical machines and treatments that saved thousand of lives!

Full Programme available on the website.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Tending the Wounds: WWI Medics & Medicine are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
