Gallery: Review & Revision *
* *
This gallery is not like the other galleries in this exhibition! It is a review and revision gallery, where you look back and see what you have learnt about Britain in the period 1906-18.

Imagine you are in this situation:
You work for the National Education and Training Research Council in the Central Management department. One day, you and the other people in your office are clearing out some old desks and filing cabinets.

You find a box full of documents. Your boss says they should be thrown out, as there is simply no room in the offices for 'a load of old junk'.
* You tell your boss she is an idiot and she sacks you.

The only way you can get your job back is to convince the head of the National Education and Training Research Council that you were right and your boss was wrong. Your only hope of doing this is to convince the Public Record Office to take the documents and make an exhibition out of them.
