    A friend of mine did this some years ago. He loaned to a school a mint Minnenwerfer shell, complete suit of german trench armour, along with other items from the great war. And guess what? The school caught fire and was burned to the ground.

    s**t happens hopefully no one was hurt.

    I always wanted to show my collection at some point, but there wasnt really anywhere nearby that had the space to show the entire collection, and the only place that had the space wasnt really suitable because of the way it tended to display things (not in display cases) so I feared that the gas masks would be handled which isnt a good thing for some of the more fragile things.

    Thanks

    Hi,
    good idea i have lent some items from ww1, to my grandchildrens school for study. It is a great idea to give talks to the kids about the war ect, and to show the items off but you will have to have a police check plus other checks to do this. you cant just make arrangments with schools for this type of thing, We may be all trust worthy in that respect but there are rules to it.

    I have done school events in the past. But Dave is correct. You need proper PLI insurance and Police background checks.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi chris,
    I could understand it being great fun ect, and would like to do
    something on those lines myself, but you are in the states and have different rules. Over here it is all security minded in schools,
    which i think is the right way to go.
