Undercover: Life in Churchill's Bunker
Personal accounts provide a picture of daily life beneath the streets of London in this exhibition about the lives of people who spent WWII underground and in secret alongside Winston Churchill. The exhibition begins by looking at the conversion of underground storage areas in 1938 to become the Cabinet War Rooms and focuses on their use as a military information centre from Britain's declaration of war in 1939. Among the objects on display are a letter registering Churchill's complaint that the Rooms were not 'bomb proof' and a sun lamp box, used to give underground workers compulsory daylight treatment.
