March back up the line and prepare to go over the top as you discover what life was like in the trenches on the Western Front for ordinary infantrymanWere the rats really as big as cats and why did the men spend so much time chatting? Could you tell the difference between a moaning Minnie and Archie?Join up and keep your uniform smart despite the  dreadful conditions. Learn what equipment and weapons you would be issued with and how effective they were. Decide if you could survive longer than the average 6 weeks lifespan of a second lieutenant or if you would just hope to get a Blighty one?
