Cobbaton Combat Collection

Chittlehampton, Umberleigh.
EX37 9RZ

The Collection ranges from tin hats to tanks, song sheets to a Morrison Air Raid Shelter. Some 60 vehicles and artillery pieces, and thousands of small exhibits. Two hangars house the military displays, with tanks and vehicles arranged into 'as used tableaux'. The glider fuselage now depicting a D-Day landing was built for the film 'A Bridge Too Far'. A recent addition is an Argentinean Mercedes G Wagon, ex Falklands War. The new 'Home Front' building has wartime British civilian life displays, from a Red Cross First Aid Post, to a farmyard scene complete with two 'Land Girls'. The Quartermaster's Stores stocks a range of militaria, collectables and souvenirs, with light refreshments from the NAAFI Wagon.
