CALL FOR PAPERS

25th Annual Conference: 27 March 2021

National Maritime Museum Greenwich

Dockyards and Baltic Campaigns (1721-2021): Comparisons and Transformations

SYNOPSIS


 

As people may know, the FIREPOWER museum at Woolwich closed in 2016 and the contents of the museum have been stored in a number of military establishments in and around Larkhill, while the site and building of the new museum is decided.
The archives have also been moved to Larkhill itself and are available for limited research; see the ‘enquiries’ page on the web-site at: – http://www.salisburyplainheritagecentre.com/
The library now needs some volunteers to help with some of these enquiries and the following request has been received: –
The Archive of the Royal Artillery Museum is looking for volunteers to help in answering the large number of enquiries we receive. We get quite a variety – a lot of family history enquiries of course, but also e-mails and letters from academics, current and former Gunners, re-enactors, historical gun enthusiasts and others.

You are not expected to know all the sources – full training is provided! However, you would need to be within easy reach of Larkhill.

If you would like more details, please get in touch with me and I will send you further information. Do also forward this to anyone who might be interested.

Best wishes,

Siân Mogridge
