The refurbished transom of a famous RAF High Speed Launch (HSL) has recently been donated to the Museum by its previous owner Peter Arnold. HSL142 had a full and successful wartime career as an Air Sea Rescue Launch, serving at Grimsby, Dover and in Gibraltar. The craft’s post-war career is sketchy but is known to have included use as a houseboat on the River Thames. The photograph shows members of the Museum team that facilitated the transom’s move to the Museum.
The Tangmere Museum has 3 computer-controlled Flight Simulators for visitors to ‘fly’.
