If you would like to be informed automatically of ALL FUTURE Ordnance Society visits, then please click on the “Follow the Ordnance Society” button under “FOLLOW THE ORDNANCE SOCIETY BY E-MAIL” in the right-hand column.  This ensures that all “NEWS” items will be e-mailed to you as soon as they appear on the web-site and these will include brief notes about future visits as well as all the other “NEWS” items.

Our new Visits Secretary, Neil Grant also organises visits for Friends of the Tank Museum and other groups, so the number and variation of trips has increased considerably. The numbers for a visit will often have a maximum, so please ensure that you use the automatic notification method outlined above in order to apply in good time.

Please note that Ordnance Society reserves the right to refuse any visit applications, particularly where access to or within the visit site are restricted.


VISITS IN 2019

It is ESSENTIAL to book for any of these visits by contacting Neil Grant at : –

neilgrant2@yahoo.co.uk

 

The new, exciting visits programme will be here in January, and here’s the first one:-

 

INVITATION TO THE ROYAL ARTILLERY COLLECTION, LARKHILL.  You will all be aware that since the closure of the “Firepower!” museum at Woolwich, the Royal Artillery collection has not been on general display to the public.  Part of it is on display at the RA barracks at Larkhill, but as this is on an active military base, tours are not generally available.  However, there is an opportunity for members of the Ordnance Society to visit the collection on the morning of Weds 23rd Jan 2019.  If you are interested, please e-mail Neil Grant before 14th Jan.  ID will be required, as it is an active military base
