Well, it was a very moving experience. After a briefing, we were issued with our meal ration pack, uniform and an authentic soldier's identity. We then marched from Bodmin Barracks to Bodmin General station, holding up the traffic as we went, (and raising curious looks!). Pannier Tank 6435 and Auto Trailer W232W were waiting to convey the party to Charlie's Gate, where a special platform had been erected to allow us to march up the field for the action - in the WW1 trench. Very atmospheric it was too. We had been asked not to take photographs during the event, as we were all, in effect, actors and the illusion would have been spoilt.
However, at the end of the action, when we learned whether our own Characters had survived, or died, it was time to return to the waiting train for the journey back to the present day. The sun was going down by then, but I couldn't resist going behind the nurses' tent (out of sight of the rest of the players), to grab my photo of the train with the first soldiers making it back to the platform.
It was really a first rate event - very well organised.
Many thanks indeed Peter for providing us with the moving very unofficial photograph grabbed from behind the Nurses Tent and also for your account. Without you there would be no record of this important event. You deserve a medal!
