  • Archives: Transcribing historic manuscripts such as letters and war diaries, cataloguing and scanning photographs.
  • Collections: Documentation and cataloguing of historic artefacts.
  • Marketing: Distribution of museum leaflets to Tourist Information Centres, local hotels and attractions.

You do not require military knowledge or experience to become one of our volunteers. All you need is enthusiasm, a sense of commitment and the ability to get on and interact with people.
