    1940's Swansea bay.

    I discovered this little museum last week. If you want loads of Ordnance its not the place to go but its FULL of home front stuff. One of those great museums where the things have been donated by local people and a lot of it isn't hidden behind glass. Well recommended if you are in the Swansea area. The wedding dress is made out of parachute silk.

    The book cover was in the Swansea Museum and is about the POW camp at Bridgend. Apparently they have an open day on 21 and 22 Sept when visitors can go around the hut where the German prisoners tunnelled from when they made their escape.
