If you have any feedback on how we can make our new website better please do contact us. We would like to hear from you. 

The UKHomefront Family of web sites.


These “mini” web sites have been used by Authors & T.V. Companies, Schools & University students to research the British Homefront.

They contain all the main speeches of the war, memories from both military & civilian. RAF poems & even a 40s style women's web site.

They show how we can be booked for your 40s event or as living history educators at your museum.

Read on & enjoy.

BOOKING UKHOMEFRONT

Our mini web site showing what we can offer your event, be it our numerous displays (once called “a travelling museum” by Oswestry Tourism”), or one of our scenario's from the blitz experience to a home guard drill.

UKHOMEFRONT ON FLICKR

The one thing we have always had trouble with is displaying the pictures from our events. So we have now moved all the pictures from 2013 onwards to our FLICKR site. The link will take you straight to the photo sets that will be made up for each event we attend. Please feel free to leave any comments (hopefully positive ones) and if you want to use any get in touch with us our email address is photos@ukhomefront.co.uk
