Youngsters learnt about World War One from an Army officer.

Lt Col Neil Unsworth OBE from the Duke of Lancaster’s Regiment talked to students and parents at S Anselms School, in Bakewell.

Pupils were given the chance to try on some uniforms of the period and to inspect a Lee-Enfield rifle and a machine gun. These objects sparked real curiosity. During the talk, various objects such as bullets, shrapnel and arms of the World War One period were passed around for inspection.
