Nicolson Exhibition

The tunic worn by James Nicolson during the Battle of Britain action for which he was subsequently awarded the Victoria Cross, has now been returned to the Nicolson Exhibition in the Museum’s Battle of Britain Hall following conservation work.

The meticulous and skilled restorative work was undertaken by the Museum’s Head of Conservation, Caroline Byron, following earlier advice from a fabrics conservation consultant. The opportunity was taken whilst the tunic was being worked on, to alter the exhibition furniture to allow the tunic to lie flat, thereby reducing the pressure on the fabric. This work was carried out by Museum’s workshop staff.
