Thornham exhibition marks anniversary of start of Second World War
Thornham Village Hall hosted a Second World War exhibition last weekend to mark the 80th anniversary of the start of the conflict.
David Brooks of Thornham History Society said it was “particularly satisfying” that those who came to visit tended to stay for a while for a proper look. Some stayed for up to an hour he said.
Themes such as life at home during the war and on the frontline were explored, while children could handle de-activated guns and suitcases from the period.
There were also war-time recipes on sale in the cafe such as carrot cake.
