Welcome to the new look website.  If you are looking for details of talks please click on the Talks button above.

 We are Karen and Bret Wiles and have put together interesting and informative exhibitions and talks showing what life was like during the Second World War in the UK and in particular what women and children did.

We started to build our collection in September 2017 and have been astonished at the information we have discovered, from Brownies working for MI9 to the huge numbers of women who worked tirelessly for the W.V.S. and W.I. organisations.

It is important, we think, to keep alive the memories of the work that people did on the Home Front by informing the public in an interesting and often humorous way.

Bret specialises in uncovering information about the U.T.P. (Upper Thames Patrol), 1940s Guiding and Scouting and Karen endeavours to further her knowledge about the W.V.S., wartime cooking and rationing.

We are not a group, although sometimes we like our re-enactor friends to join us, and do not make a profit from either our events or talks, we just do this for the love of sharing history.
