A new painting by local artist, Tony Sargeant, is now on display in the Museum’s Merston Hall. This large painting depicts three of the No 617 Squadron’s (the ‘Dambusters’) Lancaster bombers approaching the enemy coast on the night of 16/17 May 1943. Tony has kindly donated a large print of this atmospheric picture to the Museum for the Dambuster Exhibition in the Middle Hall. The photograph shows him standing by his original acrylic painting.
The Tangmere Museum has 3 computer-controlled Flight Simulators for visitors to ‘fly’.
