The War Museum starts its section on the Second World War with an overview of the movements of the Axis powers during the 1930s. The first thing the visitor sees when entering this section is this car- one that belonged to Hitler, with a large background of German troops at one of his rallies.
Further on is a uniform that belonged to Joan Voller, permanently on display here. She was a Wren, one of many women who worked in various support capacities in the armed services through the war. I haven't seen her in at least three Remembrance Days here.
This map of Atlantic Canada and Quebec during the war marks German navy attacks in the coastal waters, including as far inland as the St. Lawrence River in Quebec.
Some propaganda posters can be found in a section of the exhibit looking at the war at home. You've probably seen some of these.
This display goes into the idea of rationing at home- how on earth could one make do with a minimal amount of sugar?
This display, in the section dealing with the Italian campaign, is about the First Special Service Force, also known as the Devil's Brigade, a mixture of elite American and Canadian commandos who saw action in the European theatre during the war.
And close by we move into the D-Day section, where these two paintings tied to the invasion caught my eye.
