1. In the morning, we took a ferry from Strangford to Portaferry and drove up the coast a bit. We had a pit stop at the oldest pub in Ireland (est. 1611). It was a bit early, so I just had coffee :)
2. A large part of our day was taken up at the Somme Heritage Institute. It included some fascinating wartime propaganda for women. “Keep mum, she’s not so dumb!”
3. I wrote about Isabella Todd in my application so to see her in this museum was really exciting!
4. They had a replica of the trenches at the Somme Heritage Institute. Scary but interesting.
