Trench life for the Tommies

ITV News Meridian spent a day in a replica trench system built in an area of disused agricultural land in Surrey by historian and author Andy Robertshaw.

We were joined by re-enactors to try to get some idea of what life must have been like for soldiers on the Western Front 100 years ago.

We filmed last winter in cold, wet and muddy conditions. The troops back then faced not only the threat of German shells and snipers but also disease and trench foot .

Andy built the trench as an experimental archaeology project and it featured in his book 24hr Trench.

The line itself represents part of an actual trench system near near Railway Wood in the Ypres Salient in 1917.
