I generally try to avoid Croydon, but today was an exception.

Whilst talking about Norman Stone’s guide to WWI and I got to hear about an exhibition.

Whitgift School are remembering The Great War with and honouring the 66 pupils who lost their lives during the conflict.

If you’re interested (and live outside Croydon) it will cost £8 to get in.  You’ll see costumes, replica trenches, all manner of armaments and numerous artworks.

My favourite exhibit was this diorama which shows a DH2 aeroplane flying above the trenches.

Hurry along, the show must end on the 16th April 2017.
