As the nation prepares to mark 80 years since the outbreak of the Second World War, West Norfolk youngsters have been given a taste of what life then was like.
A 1940s-themed day was held at the Lynn Museum on Thursday, featuring a range of activities and tastes of the period.
And scores of visitors even had the chance to try their hands at the type of training drills that the Home Guard themselves would have done in order to defend the nation against the threat of Nazi invasion.
Sophie Broomfield, the museum’s front of house supervisor, said the session had been one part of a very busy half-term holiday for the Market Street attraction.
She said: “It was really well attended. Over the three hours, we had 185 visitors. That is really good numbers for one of our event days.
“We’ve had a really good, busy week.”
The session offered the chance for youngsters to make their own Spitfire badges.
There was also the chance to learn about other aspects of life during the conflict, such as food rationing, and make and sample foods from the time.
Actors took the roles of a Land Army girl and a Home Guard soldier to share stories of the period.
