Focus Feature: Honouring Victoria Cross Indian Soldiers at the National Memorial Arboretum Friday 13th October at National Memorial Arboretum

Join curator Kiran Sahota for an interactive, cross-curricular workshop and presentation that gives students the background of the Victoria Cross and how Indian Soldiers came to fight for the British Army during WWI. During the workshop, students will read letters that were written by the soldiers and about the soldiers regarding winning the Victoria Cross. As a literacy and creative writing activity strongly centred around empathy, students would be encouraged to write in the role of the soldiers receiving the VC and then as family of the soldiers. The workshop will involve many visual aids for students to explore the historical elements associated with this topic.
