For all you ex-TAS apes, bullet bosuns, sundodgers and others, the Explosion! Museum of Naval Firepower at Priddy's Hard in Gosport is planning these special events. Owing to a shortage of exhibiting space, most of the museum's artefacts are in the reserve collection and these tours provide rare opportunities to see items not normally displayed:

Just a little reminder of our two remaining events in May for Museum and Galleries Month.
