WW1 at Longshaw

We have all had a fantastic day at Longshaw today.

We have found out all about how a wounded soldier would have been treated at the front and then sent back to Longshaw to recover from his injuries. Here, he would be cared for by volunteer nurses until he recovered from his wounds. Some men were sent back to France and Belgium.

Many of the Sheffield Pals Battalion were killed on the first day of the Somme. Very few survived without injury.
