WW1: Trench digging Training.


When we think of Soldiers training we think of men running their bayonets into dummies and shouting alot. Crucial in WW1 though was trenches! Soldiers would find themselves in them for months on end, both serving as protection and living quarters. Here we see a training camp where the chaps (wot wot) are learning how to build the perfect trench. Not sure its 100% realistic, not as much mud as in the real battlefield trenches and look how clean they all look.
