The newspaper said this was a major new exhibition, telling the stories of this pivotal year of the First World War , with many exceptional exhibits never seen in public before. Curious, we visited on the third day of opening and were stunned and amazed. This really is a major exhibition of which any national museum could be proud. Outstanding exhibits include: The train station sign from Verdun station, original first issues of the 'Wipers Times' , a wooden German light field wagon, a Triumph H motorcycle, British and German ships flags from ships at Jutland, Tank tracks from the first battle at which tanks were used, uniforms, dioramas depicting homes of the time, trenches, tunnels and gun emplacements, fragments of fabric from the Red Baron's triplane , uniforms and personal memorabilia. Most of all, the journals, poetry, art, photographs, stories and recollections of soldiers, mothers, nurses, politicians from all those countries drawn into the conflict are vivid, shocking ,hopeful and touching windows into the world that was theirs. Some will bring a lump to your throat. As longtime visitors to major museums, we learned and saw things that were new to us. There is a cafe serving sandwiches and cakes - the Zeppelin shortbreads are very good and a shop , which is due to open at the end of this week. All ages are catered for with a guide especially for children. Highly recommended- we'll certainly visit again as there is so much to take in.
