On Friday 7 April 2017, 72 history pupils representing each local authority in Scotland departed for France to participate in Scotland’s international Battle of Arras commemorations.

In addition to attending a commemorative service at Faubourg d’Amiens Cemetery and a Beating Retreat in the Place des Héros on Sunday 9 April 2017, the pupils visited World War One battlefields, cemeteries and memorials where they reflected on the magnitude of the loss suffered during the conflict.

You can watch their reactions and hear their thoughts on the experience in WW100’s film:
