Village at War

Bringing the sights, sounds and smells of 1944 Britain to the Rural Life museum, take a trip back through time to see what it was like in a small village in the south of England while troops were massing and preparing to embark on D-Day, the invasion of France.

‘See how home life continued while rationing and air raids were daily occurrences, look on as American and British troops trained and interacted with the villagers, the big bands, the jive dancing, the NAAFI and so much more.

High ranking officers and VIPs will be visiting and inspecting troops and the RAF plotting room, even the Prime Minister may pay a surprise visit.
