Mr Monkey at Imperial War Museum North, June 15th

"On the whole, it's best to avoid being involved in wars"

In Silo 5 (Science, Technology and War) Mr Monkey examined a British atomic bomb. Luckily it was only a pretend bomb, with signs on it saying it was for training purposes only. Then he scampered off to Silo 6 (Legacy of War) which looks at what happens when weapons aren't just used for training. He looked at a canoe from Laos, made from a fuel tank from an American aircraft, and the invalid carriage used by a soldier from the Black Watch who lost a leg in the 1943 campaign in Tunisia.
