MARCH school children learnt about how different life was in World War II on a special themed morning.

Colin Bedford, who lived in March during the war, visited Cavalry Primary school to give a talk and brought with him artefacts from the 1940s.

Fiona Davis, who teaches at the school, was thrilled with the childrens response to Mr Bedford.
