Time to Serve: Soldier or Stretcher Bearer

FREE, Scars on the Heart, Level 2

It’s 1917, and the First World War rages on. We need more recruits for the trenches! Do you have what it takes? What suits you best: soldier or stretcher bearer?

Auckland War Memorial Museum Tāmaki Paenga Hira

Drop in for this school holiday activity and we’ll put you through your paces in this lively, interactive experience. Immerse yourself in the life of a WWI soldier, from being called up to being discharged.

Pledge your allegiance, undergo a health check, step up for training, parading, hunting for lice (yuck!) and then get your marching orders.
