The Battle of the Somme created an additional 60,000 casualties of Shell Shock – a figure unmatched by any other battle – and, in its aftermath, the Royal Army Medical Corps was banned from using the term, ‘Shell Shock.’ While the name disappeared, the condition has lingered and the anniversary of the Battle of the Somme acts as its most potent reminder.
To commemorate the Battle of the Somme we are looking for walkers to join us on the ‘PTSD Resolution Shell Shock Walk.’
Why not bring your friends and family along and make it a day out in the capital. Enjoy the sights of London and raise funds for former Service men and women and their families who are struggling from the trauma of conflict and help them get back to a normal life.
