It is here that they can experience, with the imitation “mobilisation pamphlet” of a soldier who fought in the area, the soldiers’ lives during the First World War. Through scenes of the battles of the Somme, visitors are plunged into the atmosphere and difficult living conditions of the war, before they discover the fate of the soldier who was featured in their mobilisation pamphlet.
