What do you know about the First World War?
The curators at M Shed have devised a new trail highlighting 14 of the fascinating war-related objects and stories displayed in the permanent galleries. See one of more than 25,000 motorcyles built for the armed services by Douglas Motors Ltd in Bristol, and a model of one of the more than 3,000 Bristol Fighter aircraft built in Filton and Brislington. Learn about gas masks and airraids; the suffragettes and the female tram conductors recruited during the war; refugees arriving in the city to escape conflict; children's toys of the period; Bristol-made chocolate and boots sent out to the troops; fundraising to support the war movement; opposition to the war; the Downend war memorial commemorating Boy Scouts; and the importance of the docks 100 years ago.
