Exhibition gives taste of WW2
WITH Remembrance Day fresh in the memory, a new exhibition focuses on the Caterham area and the last world war.
World War Two Home Front, staged at East Surrey Museum, includes memorabilia and photographs outlining how the 1939-45 conflict impacted locally.
Among the more vivid displays are gas masks and the tail fin of a mortar shell.
Museum curator Chris Taylor said:"The exhibition brings home just how the war impinged on the town."
