WWII Living History Weekend – Axis-Allied

Saturday, 17 February, 2018 Posted on 5th December 2016

Axis-Allied re-enactment group on site over the weekend.

On this visit to the museum, the group will be portraying the German and Italian Prisoners of War who were held at Eden Camp and across the country. Our mess hut will be used to recreate one of the prisoner barracks with static displays, and members of the group will occupy themselves with authentic work and pastimes, helping to enhance the 1940s theme, allowing visitors to get up close to uniforms, clothing and kit of the period.
