Soldiers in Silloth News
2015 is a year of military centenaries and Soldiers in Silloth has major dioramas and material featuring two of them:
- The Battle of Agincourt 1415
- The Battle of Waterloo 1815.
We have added new figures this year and more information about the battles.
In addition we offer an educational programme for school parties or other groups based on the Waterloo campaign. Learning includes investigating a timeline to put the war into an overall historical context, hands-on time with toy soldiers to study uniforms, weapons etc and a step-by-step account of the battle based on the diorama.
The Silloth Community World War One exhibition is still in place, including the replica trench and the educational programme based on that now includes dressing-up material to augment the teaching.
