Weird and wonderful WW1 facts!

Good afternoon Year 6!

We’re really looking forward to reading your pieces of writing about World War 1 at the end of the week.

I imagine you have found many interesting facts as you’ve been carrying out your research.

I came across a couple of weird and wonderful facts myself which I thought I would share…

  • Many people suffered facial injuries during WW1. As plastic surgery was primitive, artists created copper masks to hide the injuries. The masks were held on by glasses and painted to match each soldier’s skin tone. Some even featured eyelashes made from curled metal. How interesting!
  • Effective gas masks did not exist at the start of the war. The only protection soldiers had against gas attacks was a cloth, often an old sock, soaked in their own urine. Wow!

Can you share any strange facts that you have learned about WW1?
