The guides  of 3rd Stubbington  have had a day full of experiences, emotion and knowledge.

The guides started off with a coach journey to the Flanders fields museum, it was very moving and emotional and a fantastic experience we were each given a person to follow through the war, and heard real life stories from the war.

Next we headed off to experience the trenches

With our boots on we plunged into the trenches to explore what life was like

Squelch!

We then headed to the cemetery to pay our respects before heading off for a yummy dinner!

Yum yum!!

Where we met cadets from Devon and Essex and joined them for a mexican wave and another sing song to a birthday girl!!! Happy 13th birthday Kate.
