♦ Free French military display of artefacts

♦ The homefront: Ministry of Food, cooking on rations and Mrs Skivvy in the wartime garden

♦ Historian and author Neil Storey on Surviving an air raid: what precautions did ordinary people take and what did they do?

♦ domestic vehicles from the 1940s

♦ Vintage traders

♦ WITH appearances and speeches from the Rt Hon Winston Churchill PM
