We'd welcome new exhibition guides! If you'd like to give it a try, contact us via this link. Training given - It's very rewarding and good fun!
VISIT BY AIR CADETS
Two groups of Air Cadets from Grangemouth were welcomed to the Museum last October. After being introduced to the various sections of the Museum, including the 'Y' Service display, Radio Room, early communications equipment and the WW1 trench, they spent time discovering and trying out old methods of communication. As you can see from the second photo, they were very impressed with trench!!!
