Mr Monkey bought a ticket to see the temporary Great Escapes exhibition. He learnt a lot about escaping from Stalag Luft III and Colditz, but he wasn't allowed to take any pictures. He was allowed to make and keep a fake travel permit, which will be very useful if he ever needs to pretend to be a Belgian electrician travelling from Leipzig to Danzig in 1943. Then he was attracted by the odd camouflage scheme on the British 9.2-inch howitzer from the Great War.
You can read about the Great Escapes exhibition at the Imperial War Museum website.
