Uniforms Conservation Project

The Museum’s Uniforms Conservation Project is now in full swing. With funding from the Museums Development Service, our curatorial department is carrying out work to protect our collection of RAF and other military uniforms to the highest professional standards. Some of our uniforms date back to the 1920s and are now very rare. Conserving these garments involves freezing them at -30ºC for 3 or 4 days to kill any clothes moth eggs or larvae that may be present, then individually re-hanging the items in museum-quality Tyvek covers to protect them for future generations. The project is now about halfway through and will be completed in September or October. Visitors can view the ongoing work on Tuesdays and Fridays in the Meryl Hansed Memorial Hall.
