Wicked Wednesday & VJ Day events

VJ Day Celebrations at Yeovilton Fleet Air Arm Museum
All this week up to and including Monday 15th there will be a range of events happening every day at the Fleet Air Arm Museum.

Daily lectures given by the Museum's Curator and Director examining the events of each day of the last week of the war culminating with VJ Day on 15 August.

Every day at 3.00pm, all visitors old enough to recall the war first hand will be encouraged to visit the museum and share their experiences and reminisce in our Warnefords restaurant area, which will be transformed to reflect the decor and celebrations of the day 60 years earlier.

A flick through some of the wartime recipe books illustartes the unusual recipies of the day including "Somerset Rook Pie with Figgy Paste". It requires 'Six rooks, weak stock, pieces of fat bacon cut in chunks with salt and pepper to taste'.

The Museum's Catering Manager, Kevin Mansfield has been set the challenge of producing a wartime menu based on the available ingredients and rations of the day - although being a keen ornithologist and vegetarian, he has refused to put Rook Pie on the menu!
