Get the chance to interact with our replica uniforms from the Great War. We lend both the soldier’s and the nurse’s uniform so that students can picture how people dressed during wartime. The uniforms offer a small insight into the daily lives of the ordinary people who participated in events of unprecedented importance.
Contact us at 438-826-4599 or firstname.lastname@example.org to book the uniforms for your school.
