The following update regarding the Royal Artillery Museum as at mid March 2017 may be of use. Most will be aware that Firepower, the Museum of the Royal Artillery at Woolwich, closed in December 2016. The collections are in storage pending the development of a new Royal Artillery Museum. The museum will be housed in a new Salisbury Plain Heritage Centre to be built at Larkhill which will engage with the military history, natural heritage and archaeological features of Salisbury Plain. Application has been made for funding to the Heritage Lottery Fund and concept designs have been produced.
Some 10% of the RA Museum’s Library and Archive has been settled in temporary accommodation at Larkhill and a full time archivist has been at work since November last year. Updates to the web site http://www.salisburyplainheritagecentre.com/ detailing the limited access and research possibilities are imminent. However, the archivist Sian Mogridge is happy to take initial enquiries at firstname.lastname@example.org
In common with the majority of regimental museums, the RA Museum does not hold service records for individuals.
