It's an excellent museum and, as you say, in a lovely location.

Although it's "off topic", Gloucester Cathedral is also worth going to visit. The cross that is shown being carved by Lieutenant Colonel Carne VC during his time as a POW in Korea (post 56, image 41) is on display there.

Thanks for the pictures.

I agree Gloucester Cathedral is a must visit - the chapel of Remembrance included.

It might be "off topic" as you say about Lieutenant Colonel Carne VC, but respect where its due!

Glad you enjoyed the pictures!.

Post 15 has been bothering me - am I right that the British War Medal and the Victory Medals in the set awarded to Lt Col Beasley are in the wrong order? Happily, the photograph of Beasley's medals for sale on the museum's website seems to have them in the correct order.

It's a small matter and possibly they got muddled last time they were cleaned but I hope it isn't left uncorrected for too long.

I quite agree, and I'm glad that you didn't miss the Cathedral.
