Weapons that wound, hands that heal

Join Robert Fleming from the National Army Museum and Louise Bell from the National Archives as they discuss weapons and medicine during the First World War.

Throughout history, increasingly sophisticated weapons have been developed in the effort to gain an advantage in warfare. The medical profession has had to adapt to these changes in order to save lives and heal the wounded.

Museum curator Robert Fleming will explore how, by 1914, the Industrial Revolution had resulted in extremely accurate rifles and artillery, and will reflect on the severe wounds these weapons caused.

Louise Bell of the National Archives will examine the treatments available for some of the most common wounds received during the First World War. She will also discuss the institutions set up to help these men, with a particular focus on those who were disabled by the war.
