Education and School Resources
We supply original and reproduction historical WW2 items, documents and paperwork for schools and educational facilities

Two World Wars, periods in time not readily identified with by the young, those who lived through those harrowing times are now becoming a rare breed, their worlds of trenches, dugouts, shelters, Identity cards, air raid instructions, rationing, sirens, bombing, fear and hope are now long gone, but the civilian's documents, soldiers paybooks and passes, the boots they marched in, equipment they wore and used, the documents carried, letters written, their life, their wars, can bring an added dimension to your class and make everything that bit more personal.
We provide a large number of WW1 and WW2 related history resources for teachers locally and nationally.
