Jakk and I finally had a day spare this weekend and checked it out - its a trove of 1940s memorabillia, clothes and even a re-created lounge room complete with airplane wall paper and ration books.

Its easy to forget that Sydney came under attack by Japanese submarines during the War, and the exhibition has photos of the damage to houses in the eastern suburbs as well.
My favourite piece would have to be the knitted american flag jumper that a woman made, to welcome the new US troops that were being stationed here (its tiny in real-life, she must have been very petite!).
A War exhibit isnt complete without posters and propaganda.
A really enjoyable and interesting exhibition - its on until 9 September at the Museum of Sydney on the corner of Bridge and Phillip streets.
Don't regret missing out!
