so please do not panic! You have arrived at the Museum of Radar and Communications website at HMS Collingwood.
The original and familiar buttons on the bottom of the page are still functional to gain access to the site.
This is a temporary page which will be displayed for a finite period only.
In the months ahead, the Museum, ergo the Museum web page, will be changing on a permanent basis to take account of a reorganisation forced upon the Museum by circumstances beyond its control, which will alter the modus operandi of the Museum. The reorganisation has already started with a rationalisation of the exhibits held, which will involve getting rid of so-called 'non-core business' bits and pieces. This, the Museum does reluctantly, for it considers all Museum exhibits to be an integral part of the story of radio [radar is not involved], but the decision is now a fait accompli.
To that end, a Catalogue has been produced giving details of all exhibits which are to be discarded, offering the equipment for sale to the general public. This is the purpose of this temporary page. On this page you will find seven PDF files which are considered to be small enough for all users of the internet to handle and download with ease. As a group, they cover the forty one pages of the Catalogue, accompanied by instructions on how to acquire each piece of equipment with the contact details of Museum personnel.
We hope that you can help us to find good homes for these equipments and encourage you to browse these files.
