CHILDREN from Surfleet Seas End Primary School donned military uniform for a tour of the marshes at Freiston Shore, near Boston, and a close-up look at Second World War installations such as pillboxes and gun emplacements.

Class teacher Ben Newstead said, as part of their history studies, pupils rode there on a military vehicle while wearing military uniform and carrying WW2 weaponry.

He said: “The children enjoyed WW2 style meals consisting of porridge for breakfast, corned beef, potatoes and carrots for lunch and a baked apple and bread pudding, covered in custard. This is definitely a trip that the children will remember. A fantastic and fully enriching day.”
