Visit to Royal Artillery Museum Display, Larkhill – Wednesday 23rd January

Some of you may recall the Royal Artillery's “Firepower!” museum at Woolwich.  It was an excellent museum, but sadly closed in 2016.  Since then, much of the collection has been in store, but some of it – including both towed and self-propelled guns – has been displayed at the Royal Artillery barracks at Larkhill in Wiltshire.  However, since Larkhill is an active military base, it is not routinely open to the public.  Friends of the Tank Museum have been invited by the Friends of the RA collection to their special open day there on weds 23rd January.  There is no charge, but I'm sure a donation would not go amiss.  If you want to attend, you will need to contact the visits organiser at neilgrant2@yahoo.co.uk before the 21st January – if you aren't on the list, you won't get in.  Note photo ID will be needed.
