  2. Thanks for sharing. I haven't visited the IWM since I was 13, something I must redress.

  4. Excellent travel photos! I especially like the photo of the 88. Very cool!
    I wonder if the Russian Revolution exhibition is the same one I saw in Zurich in May? If the same then you were in for a real treat.

  6. Pottering, a much underrated pastime. I preferred the old IWM, not fond of museums designed for folk so they don't have to think for themselves.

    1. We could no doubt start a long debate on the best museums ? I have been to so many over the yearsπŸ˜€

  7. Pottering much undervalued I think as I grow older! Not at Claymore on Saturday then?

  9. I am not sure it gets much better than the Imperial War museum.

    I should make an effort and go this year again.
