The date of the visit to Small Arms Museum in Warminster is changed from 14th February to the 15th February; and some visits are already fully booked – see the VISITS page for details.
A new album is on our Flickr site that contains 95 photos, taken by Ordnance Society Treasurer Geoff Smith, of the Military Museum of Tenerife in 2017.
Our first trip this year is to the Weapons Collection at the British Army Small Arms School in Warminster – an amazing opportunity for hands-on access for pretty much every personal and light support weapon you’ve ever heard of, including some unique prototypes. The trip will be on Wednesday 14th February. Places are limited, so if you are interested, contact the visits secretary: – firstname.lastname@example.org
The Royal Artillery Archive has been moved from Woolwich to Larkhill, and although not yet fully open has the need for some volunteers to help out in the library with the wide range of queries that are received. For details, see the ORDNANCE RELATED EVENTS page on the web-site.
The visits secretary, Neil Grant, has organised an excellent range of visits for this year. They are run jointly for a number of different societies and organisations, so not all of them will be directly related to ordnance! If you interested in any of them, then contact Neil Grant directly via e-mail. See the PUBLICATIONS page for details.
The Ammunition Collection at the FIREPOWER Museum was photographed in June 2016 just before an FFE exercise prior to the collection being taken into storage. There are 240 photos which have just been uploaded to the ‘Flickr’ album.
Due to unforeseen circumstances the visit planned for 15th January has had to be postponed until 5th March.
