Trip to Leamington Art Gallery & Museum

As part of the 'Art of Camouflage' project, a group of us visited The Leamington Art Gallery & Museum to see the ''Concealment and Deception: The work of the Leamington camouflage group in the Second World War". This was a fascinating exhibition showing the work of artists such as Stephen Bone, Leon Underwood, Christoper Ironside, and Colin Moss and other artifacts of interest.
