The Ordnance Society

Ordnance & Artillery of All Periods


The Ordnance Society owns a WW1 German 7.6cm Minenwerfer which for many years languished, almost forgotten, at Fort Nelson. We’ve recently been asked to move it and thanks to the efforts of board member Geoff Smith it was transferred to the new WW1 Memorial Museum at Fort Widley, Portsmouth on 30th March. The full story will be in the next Newsletter, but in the meantime some pictures have been added to our Flickr page.
