Although there is plenty to examine, on entering the museum you don’t feel overwhelmed by its contents. It’s well displayed and easy to understand. And just before I leave, I’m shown Hitler’s signed Christmas card to Sir Donald Bailey.
The card wishes Sir Donald Bailey a “Merry Christmas and Happy New Year” and was discovered by Jacques Hale, editor of Christchurch’s University of the Third Age magazine. It’s now on display in the grounds of the Pegasus Bridge Museum and fits in nicely with the museum’s section on the Bailey Bridge.
The card was supposedly dropped off by the Luftwaffe in 1941 on the Experimental Bridging Establishment!
Unfortunately, I don’t have time to get my forensic science kit out to determine its authenticity.
