AN exhibition about Kirklees wartime life is on show to mark the 60th anniversary of the end of World War Two.
The Red House Museum at Gomersal is again showing its All Clear On The Home Front exhibition, based on memories of local people.
Items on show include ration books, wartime cookbooks and ingredients and humorous wartime posters and postcards - some made by Holmfirth company Bamforths.
Among the everyday items are gifts such as handbags sent to loved ones by soldiers away on active service.
Gas masks, weaponry and remains of mines and bombs are also on display.
There is even a full-size Anderson shelter, which visitors can sit inside and experience simulated sounds of enemy planes overhead.
The main focus of the exhibition is the true-life stories of local people.
The tales of tragedy, triumph and humour are given to visitors in both written and spoken form.
They tell of local people's financial contributions to war equipment, how families had to "make do and mend" with rations and the experiences of girls working on farms and in factories while men were away fighting.
Museum officer Helga Hughes said: "Around 15 years ago, people around Kirklees were interviewed about their war-time experiences.
"Their memories helped create this exhibition. Some are amusing, some angry, some happy, some sad. They capture the real and personal stories of life at the time."
Admission is free. It will be on show until November 13, from 11am to 5pm on weekdays and noon to 5pm at weekends.
