Trench Experience: Cassel 1940

Daily from Tuesday 23rd June, at various intervals, 25 mins | Price £11.50

It’s the third week of May 1940, and at the town of Cassel in Flanders, the 2nd Gloucesters and 4th Ox & Bucks are defending the hilltop town against the full fury of the victorious Germans.  Their job: to hold on for as long as possible a key stretch of the southern flank as the bulk of the British Expeditionary Force folds in on itself and falls back to Dunkirk.  In this trench experience you will be transported back to late May 1940 and to the hastily built and defended trenches as the Germans make their murderous assault.
