We visited the poppies at Carlisle castle as part of their tour. We were lucky enough to see the poppies up close before being given a tour of the military museum and an opportunity to look at and reflect on the art gallery too. We were really interested to look at the art in more detail in our groups.
We were also able to take part in a workshop comparing soldiers in the first world war to soldiers nowadays and we met a real-life soldier who brought all of his kit for us to look at and try out. It was very interesting to try on the uniforms and experience what soldiers might have to go through on a regular basis.
