WW2 Research

Leave a comment

Some of our Year 5 children brought some fascinating WW2 artefacts into school. The finds included:  a hand grenade belonging to the 101st Airborne Division; a replica 100lb bomb; an Iron Cross; original ID cards, unused ration books; a gas mask and a belt of spent cartridges. Family history documentation highlighted some amazing facts, including references to a scientist who invented the radar. The scientist, Dr Campbell Minnis, is the great- great uncle of one of the boys in Class 5!
