HELLO and a warm welcome to the Royal Navy's Museum of RADAR and Communications?

sited in HMS COLLINGWOOD, certainly the largest naval shore establishment in Europe and possibly, after the USN only, in the world given the current lack of detailed knowledge of the Russian and Chinese naval training establishments ashore!

Why the ? after the title above?

Well it was a museum until recently when the newly created <Museums' of the Royal Navy> decided that it didn't qualify as a museum, just a mere collection of bits and pieces of no longer used items - [isn't that what a museum is really all about?]

 Bit by bit they ordered a sell-off of some items deemed by them as none-core items, and what remained was relocated to another building in Collingwood.

At the same time, but absolutely nothing to do with the RN Museum Organisation, the museum curator decided to call it a day, and to seek retirement.

We now have a new curator, a new building and a new name, and commensurate with those changes, a new front end for our web site, which from hereonin is called

HMS Collingwood's Historic Collection

[shortened, when necessary to mention it, to CHC]

We have decide not to change the site's URL because it is well established on the internet and a name change might cause confusion amongst surfers, and that could lead to 'loss of business' for us. For that reason, the URL alone mentions a museum but in all other cases, we show the CHC abbreviation.

The main parts of the CHC remain unchanged and will be familiar to you.

The site is under reconstruction although pages, new and old [pre and post reconstruction] can be viewed. When the revamp has been completed, this paragraph will be deleted.
