We would like to sincerely thank you and all the other volunteers who took the time to show us around Brixham Battery and share all your knowledge. I know the children found it fascinating and I'm sure they will be visiting you again soon. They came away with
a fountain of facts which they will be using in some WWII writing this week. It's my fifth time to The Battery and I'm still learning things! Hope to see you next year.
Thanks again, kindest regards,

I came down with the family we all had a fantastic time
There's loads to see and the people who volunteer do a fantastic job with the talks
Loved the walk through the garden to see the rest of the builds
The model of the site is fantastic
I would recommend this if your in to your history
. I had a great tour on Sunday last. They opened up the tunnel and crew rest rooms. I was there for about two hours. Great displays and plenty of background.Thanks again
Barbara Geary Truly Amazing experience. It bought me to tears being under there, experiencing the things my mum & other relatives went through in Essex during the war, and told us about when we were young (dad was away).. It REALLY was brilliant.. Tony
gave a really interesting and informative talk.... if ONLY you could KEEP it !!!!!
I think we can be very Proud of this Display....A few comments .please read,,
Being escorted down to the air raid shelter by the female ARP Warden at Lupton House Brixham. My face must say it all. This was the best air raid experience so realistic. The recording was of a real air raid on the East End of London to think these people went
through this for about 76 consecutive nights for upto 6 hours at a time. I also learnt that the ARP wardens did not take shelter in they stood out on the streets in doorways. Brave people and to think they have never been awarded a medal or had a memorial
dedicated to them. Elizabeth Norris

Hello Brenda and your team at the Battery Gardens,
Please give our warmest thanks to our tour guides and all of your volunteers who made our visit so very enjoyable and informative. We all found it absolutely fascinating, and really appreciated very much your staying open longer so that we could have a look
at the museum. I heard so many comments from everyone afterwards about how much they had learned, even 'though a number of them walk through the gardens frequently, and how much they valued the visit.
I must apologise for our late arrival; we had taken a trip on the Vigilance during the morning and docked half an hour later than planned! This upset all of the fine timings I had organised, as I had thought we would arrive early enough to view the museum before
the tour. Thanks to your kindness, we were still able to see everything.

An absolutely amazing day out for all ages. I cannot wait to become a volunteer.
