Last year’s annual Living History day commemorated the WW1 Centenary with an insight into life as a British solider at away and away from home. Located in Leighton Buzzard High Street, displays and interactive demonstrations of wartime took place. Visitors to the event saw how soldiers would cook, what weapons they used and what their first aid arm post would consist of. There was also be an Army Signal School for Children and the opportunity to take on board some WWI training including drill experiences and marching!
