IWM Forward Communications. Western Front. Trenches

At what point does a walk through exhibit become a science-fiction flight through time to expeience the moment as it was. Distinctly lacking in this trench: flies, rats, the smell of death, urine, unwashed bodies, gas, explosions and burning wood and flesh. Distinctly absent the mud underfoot, of course, as a museum exhibit children and tourists in flip-flops and high heels have to be catered for.
