What was fascinating for us was that it gave us a great insight, not just in what the fort did during the war, but we learnt about everything leading up to both wars and what happened subsequently. For me the most interesting part was understanding how they recycled and reused, the contribution women made to the war effort, and what to cook with so little.
Enjoy the photo's - sorry some of them are so grainy. The exhibitions were in 'caves' round the fort.
Love this image - nothing stops 2 women from having a good gossip!
I would love to have some of these kitchen items........
No waste in 1942...........
I bought a book whilst I was there - Rationing in the Second World War - Spuds, Spam and Eating for Victory. I'll share some bits of it once I've read it, as I'm sure they'll be some interesting articles.
See you soon.
