School exhibition includes WWI trench

The History Department at Redruth School has created an exhibition commemorating World War One – there’s been an Open House this week so that people from outside the school can drop by to see it.

This has been the brainchild of history teacher Lucy Johnson and students have created a trench with barbed wire. And also resourced materials and researched family history to discover more about the people who fought and lived through the war.

The official opening ceremony took place on Wednesday 5 November and was attended by Commander John Lea, Executive Officer of RNAS Culdrose, Redruth Town Mayor, William Tremayne, Sgt Jamie Callister, Mr Aidan Wood, British Army Veteran and Military Historian and Sgt Rob Warr.

Really hope to be able to see this before it closes.
