On Friday 26 November 2010, it was cold and wet. At 10.00AM , a class from Le Quesnoy came to perform the Platoon Experience.
The students are taken the identity of an Australian soldier and will experience October 4th 1917.
They are starting with a visit of the museum and an overall introduction to WWI.
All this was done in English! So it was not only learning about history but also language.
If you know that those students are around 14-15 years old we must confirm that they have been well disciplined and very brave. Congratulations!
The lunch was a WWI meal , a kind of stew (vegetables, potatoes and corned beef), named Tommy Tucker with mineral water. Of course , as in WWI, the lunch was taken outside
language. She's from Wellington, New Zealand!
This marks the place were Lt Hart was killed after capturing the Thames Farm pill box.
