Did you know facts about WW1



Hello everyone, how is everyone on this lovely Monday morning no afternoon it is.

Because it is Remembrance Day I have five facts about World War 1.

An explosion on the battlefield in France was heard in England

Journalists risked their lives to report on the war

Around 12 million letters were delivered to the frontline every week

Plastic surgery was invented because of WW!

The youngest British soldier in WW1 was just 12 years old.

Thanks Jo-Anne for sharing these facts. We watched the ceremony this morning on television and it was very moving. Lest We Forget.

Betting that explosion was the time they burrowed under the hill and stuffed it full of TNT for a couple of days. !2 million, wow!
