So whilst the boys were bonding over jets and guns I happily happened to stumble upon the Battle of Britain Village and this......
How happy was I! A nice cup of tea, bunting galore and the truly wonderful Miss Madeline Brown singing wartime classics and I was whisked away to 1940's Britain!
The Blitz Village outside the main tent featured mock-ups of rooms from a typical 1940s home including a kitchen, parlour and bedroom, plus a garden, and re-enactors were on hand to give the public a feel for wartime Britain. All the props on display were owned by the re-enactors who were costumed in authentic dress.
I was amazed at the depth and attention to detail that the 'Blitz Buddies' go to. Now all I need to do is practise my Victory Roll and learn how to do the Jitterbug and I'll be ready to join them!
