Fighting Damp

September, 2007

Preserving our exhibits is a full time, on-going task. Even when they are indoors the process must go on and this September the Museum is having the inside of its newest Hall, The Meryl Hansed Hall, sprayed with a water absorbent coating to further protect the Hunter Mk 5 and the F53 Lightning from the condensation that can build up in the winter months.
This has been made possible by the generosity of Grafo Products Limited who undertook this work free of all charges. Our thanks to them.

Both aircraft were donated to the Museum by Raymond and the late Meryl Hansed, in whose honour the Hall is named. Our picture shows these two fine aircraft shrouded to protect them during the spraying.

Talks by Tangmere

The Museum is pleased to be able to offer speakers to interested groups or societies on a range of subjects connected with the history of operations at RAF Tangmere and other military aviation subjects.

The presentations are usually given as an audio/visual presentation using the Museum's equipment. Our presentations can be tailored to suit audiences ranging from specialist societies to community based groups and range in length from 40 to 90 minutes depending on the subject matter.

Further details of the full range of presentations and the availability of speakers can be obtained by calling the museum on 01243 790090, by emailing your interest to director@tangmere-museum.org.uk or by letter marked for the attention of the Director.
