Success for the RAPTC Museum

I am pleased to announce that the Museum has been successful in its application for a grant from the Army Museums Ogilby Trust. This sum will be spent on a new medal display cabinet which will enable us to display all the medals that are currently residing in the storeroom. This will hopefully be on show in the Museum in the early Autumn.

The Museum is desperately short however, of medals from the last few decades which would enable us to more fully tell of the Corps' recent activities. If you are RAPTC/APTC and served on UN missions, on Op Telic/Herrick or in the Gulf (or earlier) and are looking for a good home for your medals, then we would very much like to hear from you.

On another note, we are currently creating our "100 Days Offensive" exhibition in collusion with several other military museums, telling the story of the closing days of WW1. This will involve a travelling exhibition between the museums and a video project, both of which will be appearing later in the year; more details to follow.

Finally, if you can't make it to the Museum itself, we will be running a stall at the Armed Forces Day celebrations at Queen Elizabeth Country Park in Netley on the 30th June. If you can make it we would love to see you there.
