KNOW YOUR ENEMY: TRUCES AND FRATERNISATION
World War I was fought across many theatres of war; on land, sea and in the air. In the dark Winter months of 1914 a truce broke out in a number of areas along the Western Front. Allied and Central Powers soldiers exchanged small gifts, shared food and even played football together over the Christmas period. Why and how did this truce happen, how long did it last and how was it broken? Were there other instances of truce? And what about fraternisation with the enemy? Come along and learn about these events in the trenches as the Digging In project draws to a close.
Join Digging In (www.diggingin.co.uk) at Pollok Park, Glasgow on Sunday 9th December2018 to discover how enemies became friends, however briefly, in the theatre of war. Explore the First World War through activities, demonstrations, exhibits and displays! Families & well behaved dogs welcome!
