A private Battersea school hosts a huge exhibition focused on the two world wars.

Wandsworth Guardian:

The display at the Emanuel School library will include about 200 display boards, diaries, artefacts, photos, uniforms, medals and other memorabilia.

Everything on display is related to Emanuel School in some way. To coincide with the exhibition the school is also publishing a 600 page book called Emanuel School at War: the Greatest Scrum That Ever Was.

Tony Jones, Emanuel School archivist, says: "This project has been a labour of love, and we have been working on it (on and off) for between four and five years.

"As far as we know this is the biggest planned war-related event of any school in the UK, and that includes the famous old institutions of Eton, Westminster, Wellington et al."

Bill Attfield, a Second World War veteran, helped with the project along with a number of other vets.
