We were excited to take part in the Armed Forces Day held at Gadebridge Park, Hemel Hempstead on 1st July. This free event was organised by the Dacorum Borough Council, for more information about it please go here.
A fantastic team of our volunteers organised historical objects and information from the collection to create interesting displays for the public to view. and engage with. Objects were themed for the event, and included Air Raid Patrol Warden’s equipment, a gas mask and a rather interesting item, called a button stick, which is slid over buttons to protect the textile when polishing them!
It was a great opportunity to support a local event, and also to continue to raise awareness of us and our historical collection to a wider audience, building on the success of our Traditional Dacorum exhibition in June.
Thanks again to all those involved, your support is always much appreciated!
