The Science Museum will be marking the 100th anniversary of the Battle of the Somme with a new exhibition about this momentous battle, which will explore the huge impact that the wounds had on the soldiers both during and after the First World War.

British forces suffered 57,000 casualties during the battle, creating a medical emergency of unprecedented scale and severity.

The exhibition will use the words of the wounded, and of those who cared for them, to explore how the doctors and hospitals responded, and what medical innovations were catalysed by this conflict.
