Price of a Mile Exhibition Launch

Join us on the 7 October for a very special launch event…

The Heritage Centre’s latest exhibition, The Price of a Mile, explores the anaesthetics and pain relief during the Battle of the Somme, and the facilities and techniques used by medical teams in 1916.

The exhibition will be launched with a special talk and panel discussion, followed by a drinks reception and private view.

Hear from Dr Emily Mayhew, author of ‘Wounded’, the story of the journey from injury on the battlefield to recovery in Britain for the soldiers and people who cared for them on the frontline.

Prof Roger Kneebone, Professor of Surgical Education and Engagement Science at Imperial College, and Dr Jean Horton, retired anaesthetist and past President of the History of Anaesthesia Society, will be discuss medical care during the Battle of the Somme.
