Beech Tribe have a 1940’s WW2 experience

We took a time travel coach to the Lincolnsfields Centre where we experienced what it was like in the 1940’s.  There were 3 activities:

  • Our favourite – We rode on the back of an army Jeep to an old shelter where we saw an unexploded bomb and had to evacuate to an air raid shelter while there.  It was dark and there were sounds of aeroplanes and bombs.
  • We also saw how people turned their gardens into places to grow food and build Anderson Shelters.  Here we also heard the siren that warned people to go to the shelter and got to try put out a fire.  Then we rode the Jeep back and explored a museum where we held a disabled firearm as well as wear an army helmet and backpack.
  • Finally, we went into an old house and saw how people lived.

Much fun was had by all.
