The First World War brought together service personnel from different countries and backgrounds. Slang words were used to help people to describe some of their experiences and this new trail will help families work together and learn some of the terms used. 

The Spot the Slang trail costs £1.00 and the word definitions can be found amongst the exhibits on site during a visit. Trails can be purchased from the Visitor Centre on arrival. 

The First World War in the Air Exhibition at Cosford was made possible through funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund and with support from BAE Systems
