First phase of project completed
Friday 19 October 2018

Members of the Society have been busy working on a heritage project with The Royal Hampshire Regiment Museum in Winchester.  The Museum has in its collection many military uniforms, some going back to the eighteenth century.  Not all of these are on display, so protective covers were needed for those kept in storage.  A team of eight volunteers made 85 covers for the uniforms, and have just handed them over.  The material used was Tyvek, which will keep the uniforms dry and free from rot, mildew and moth.  With this phase of the project complete, the next stage is to make covers for the larger army great-coats.
