Tommy Teaches Visits Fisher More
Scott Knowles is the “Tommy Teacher” and plays the part of a World War 1 ‘Tommy’ soldier. On 7 December he visited Fisher More and talked to pupils about life in the trenches, the hardships faced by WW1 soldiers, the local Accrington Pals battalion and his role as an ‘extra’ in period dramas and films. A number of Scott’s relatives fought in WW1 and he brought in a lot of artefacts to show the pupils as part of the presentation. The presentations were very well received by all pupils and the history department are looking forward to booking him again for 2017!
