Turn left on Piccadilly - a day in the life of a British trench
Nov 13, 2022 Season 4 Episode 25

Welcome to our 100th podcast!

In today's episode, we look at the trenches that formed the 450 miles of the Western Front, running from the Swiss border to the Belgian coast.

We look at how trenches were designed, and where the naming patterns came from.  We hear the macabre reasoning behind Woman Trench, learn about the role of the Sanitary Corporal and discover how a German artillery attack did wonders for a British officer's digestive problems.

Footsteps of the Fallen will be back on the 4th December!
