Concealment and Deception: The Art of the Camoufleurs of Leamington Spa 1939 - 1945

This exhibition tells the story of the camouflage establishment based in Royal Leamington Spa during World War 2 (1939-1945). The Civil Defence Camouflage Establishment was found at the start of the war with Nazi Germany to develop camouflage for strategically important installations like factories, power stations and airfields. Later, in 1941, the CDCE was expanded to include a Naval Camouflage Section and renamed the Camouflage Directorate. The exhibition presents the work of the camouflage staff - often known as 'camoufleurs' - against the backdrop of life on the 'Home Front'.
