The original Armoury building contains a comprehensive collection of both ground-based and
airborne weaponry together with the countries most complete collection of 1940 uniforms, flying equipment
and insignia as worn by both sides of the conflict, as well as personal items donated to the Museum by
pilots, both British and German who fought in the Battle of Britain.
You will also be able to see 'The Wall Of Honour' which contains over 600 autographs of
Battle of Britain pilots and aircrew, some famous, many not so, and a impressive collection of Battle of
Britain Fine Art Prints.
Items donated by the families of Air Chief marshal Sir Hugh Dowding, Group Captain Douglas
Bader and Wing Commander 'Bob' Stanford-Tuck, to relatively unknown Sergeant Pilots can be seen. All help
to tell the story of the Battle of Britain, keep its memory alive and educate younger generations.
There is also a small display, dedicated to the First World War, which includes items from
Trench Warfare through to the Zeppelin and Gotha raids on Great Britain.
