The Price of a Mile is the third in a series of exhibitions honouring the work of doctors who administered anaesthesia and pain relief to the wounded of the First World War. It explores the anaesthetics and pain relief available during the Battle of the Somme, and the facilities and techniques used by medical teams in 1916.

Join us for a very special Lates event:

  • Dr Emily Mayhew, author and historian, will be discussing her new book, A Heavy Reckoning: War, Medicine and Survival in Afghanistan and Beyond
  • A fascinating panel discussion with Col Duncan Parkhouse, Queen's Honorary Physician and Defence Representative to the AAGBI Council, and Prof Roger Kneebone, Professor of Surgical Education and Engagement Science at Imperial College
  • View a special photography exhibition from award-winning British Army photographer, Sgt Rupert Frere
  • Explore the Price of a Mile exhibition in a private view at the Anaesthesia Heritage Centre.
