The Vimy Trench at EMM
The newest addition to the WW I Room, now located in the Thorman Room, is a 36 foot life size model of a Vimy Trench. This ambitious endeavour provides glimpse into life in a trench, the role of nursing sisters at the front and a moving tribute to Lance Sgt. Ellis Wellwood Sifton who was awarded the Victoria Cross for his actions at the Battle of Vimy Ridge.
Our trench was a feature exhibit at the regional tribute to the 100th Anniversary in London on April 1, 2017
