Discovering fascinating ways of communicating during wartime.


Communicating in Wartime

  • Free. No bookings required
  • Drop-in activity table in the Visitor Centre, 11am-2pm 
  • Not available on Saturday and Sunday

Discover the fascinating ways, both openly and secretly, that service people have communicated with one another and headquarters. Learn how people across the miles kept in touch with their families, and how news from home travelled to them...all before the internet and mobile phones!

After your self-guided tour of the Galleries of Remembrance, visit the activity table in the Visitor Centre between 11am-2pm to see a real Second World War field phone and other fascinating objects.
