The move continues. The majority of the physical displays and cases are now in place. The New Year will see Collections staff doing a through dusting of everything before they then start installing all of the objects.

A big thank you to all the REME Officers and Soldiers, current and former, who have given up their time to give input and feedback for the displays. A big thank you to the public who continue to offer their support and have made the Museum staff feel so welcome in their new home.

Current plans are that the Museum will be open to the public in Spring 2017. An exact date will be announced closer to the time. Jennifer Allison – Curator
