Dave Machin - Guide

After a long career as a classroom English teacher, Dave relishes the chance to work with young people in a different environment, sharing his enthusiasm for learning about the human experience of World War 1. Accompanying battlefield tours as a teacher ignited his interest and he particularly enjoys linking sites visited to a school’s home area while researching relevant stories about unheralded individuals. Dave has taught war literature and directed plays about warfare and its effect; he also led school projects and tours to Ghana several times, Namibia and South Africa as well as the battlefields. Dave also works as a supply Teaching Assistant in an SEN school and volunteers with the CWGC, having also supported young offenders in the community.
