Join us for a special event to celebrate our latest exhibition, The Price of a Mile: Anaesthesia during the Battle of the Somme.
Hear from Dr Emily Mayhew, author of A Heavy Reckoning: War, Medicine and Survival in Afghanistan and Beyond, with a private view of images from award-winning photographer Rupert Frere, and the museum's latest exhibition, The Price of a Mile.
To be published in May 2017, A Heavy Reckoning explores trauma and medicine in wartime from the First World War to Afghanistan and modern rehabiliation centres. Dr Mayhew's talk will be followed by a panel discussion and Q&A with military anaesthetists, book signing and drinks reception with a special canapé menu.
The Price of a Mile is the third in a series of exhibitions honouring doctors who gave anaesthesia and pain relief during the First World War, and explores the facilities and techniques available to medical teams
