The IBCC has a new resident tour guide, a gremlin called Gus. During the Second World War, he specialised in tinkering with the aircraft, although some would say he was more of a nuisance. Now the war is over, he has found a new job at the IBCC and has promised to behave himself as he takes children around the centre.
Use the IBCC’s new E-trail to explore the story of Bomber Command in World War Two gremlin style with games, photos, and real-life stories from the people who were there to help your child:
- Discover WW2 through the story of a rear gunner (and some of the disgusting things airmen did for luck!)
- Learn about life on the Homefront
- Decide for themselves how Bomber Command should be remembered
- Uncover the truth about gremlin mischief in WW2
The trail has been designed for 7-11-year-olds, although adults may be required for discussions and challenges. All you need is a smartphone/ tablet and a sense of adventure! Ask at reception when you arrive for information about how to access the trail. Don’t forget to tell them what you thought. Prizes available!
