Land Army Week at the Royal Air Force Museum

27 August - 1 September 2013

Land Army Week at the RAF Museum LondonThe 27th to August to 1st September brings Land Army Week to the Museum, during which the Museum will have on display on its helipad the various animals that members of the public were encouraged to keep during World War 2 either to provide fresh produce for their families, such as chickens and goats for eggs and milk, or to aid them with their day to day lives such as ponies who were invaluable for transport at a time when petrol was heavily rationed. Animals that will be on display on the Museum’s Helipad throughout the week include miniature Shetland ponies, goats, chickens, sheep, rabbits and ferrets. Animals will be on view for free to the public from 10am to 5pm.
