Mr Monkey scurried down into the basement, where there's a warren of galleries about the First and Second World Wars. He studied the collection of signposts from British trenches, and wondered how they decided whether they were going to use a British street name for a trench, or be a bit more accurate. Then he kept his head down as he listened to troops preparing to make a midnight raid in the rather smelly Trench Experience.
