Digging In at the Cathedral


Salisbury: 7th October 2017

They often hold exhibitions and displays in the Cathedral Close, Salisbury, and this time it was a little different. To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Passchendaele, they showed a mock-up of a WW1 trench … with re-enactors on hand to answer questions.

David Bremner had his Bristol Scout there, too, which I saw at Larkhill a few weeks ago.


Of course, they couldn’t reproduce it exactly … everyone had nice clean uniforms on, and there wasn’t any mud around. There were a few model rats placed at strategic intervals … but well short of the real thing. I doubt if the ‘Health and Safety Police’ would have allowed it, anyway
