Your pupils will be immersed in an unforgettable learning experience led by two characters: a drill sergeant and a matron.

The matron will test your pupil's skills and stomachs in our interactive medical session, helping your pupils understand the advances in medical practice and the role women played in the conflict.

We guarantee your pupils will remember this experience for many years to come.
