Remember the Fallen

“We booked Discover History for the George Marshall Medical Museum’s 10th birthday celebrations in August 2013. They certainly helped with our ‘celebration’, coming with their usual enthusiasm and dedication to our required theme of ‘medicine through the ages’. Paul, Helen and Co always put on a great show, and have a wonderful stock of props for every occasion!”
