This expansive exhibition covers a pivotal year during the First World War and the impact on Britain, France and Germany. Highlights include reconstructions of both English and German trenches, original tank tracks from their very first use to a series of rooms decorated in contemporary style. There will a specific focus on the fatal dogfight between Red Baron aka Manfred von Richthofen and former Whitgift pupil Second Lieutenant Lionel Morris.

Attended the opening of this exhibition. Absolutely blown away by the impartial account of trench and war time life, told from the perspective of British, German and French sides. A must see.
