A bust of Squadron Leader Hugh Verity, Officer Commanding No 161 (Special Duties) Squadron ‘A’ (Lysander) Flight during 1943, has recently been gifted to the Museum by Worthing modeller Jack Gardner. The bust is seen here being received, on behalf of the Museum, by Trust Chairman Group Captain David Baron. Jack has just completed a degree course in modelling and was commissioned last year by the Museum’s Curator, David Coxon, to model the bust. This formed part of Jack’s submission for his degree and has recently won a national award for ‘best model for a museum’. The bust is displayed in the Museum’s Merston Hall
The Tangmere Museum has 3 computer-controlled Flight Simulators for visitors to ‘fly’.
