The Imperial War Museum, London

So Colonel Mustard is on a field trip for a few weeks and leaving his workbench aka the dining room table for a while. With limited opportunity for any modelling my blog takes an alternate angle. Landing on the sunny shores of Great Britain i had to visit the Imperial War Museum in London.

The ground floor is dedicated to World War One and is amazing. It covers every last detail you can possibly think of. Video footage, artifacts, original weapons, uniforms, maps and everything else you could possibly think of. There is even a full size reconstruction of a trench underneath a tank. Great stuff. If you want to know about World War One this is the ultimate source.

Second floor turns to World War Two and was my favourite mainly because of the Sherman tank and the Willy’s Jeep! Oh and there is a T34 on the ground floor. Mmmmmm tanks.

It’s a must visit for anyone with an interest in anything military and very well done. The floor dedicated to the Holocaust is also a must see, and while extremely sombre and confronting, reminds us of what atrocities and stupidity the human race is capable of. Things we still see today unfortunately around the world.
