Static displays of the collection, for a specific audience or a wide range of people, provide the opportunity to see the items in a more ‘regular’ museum-type context, with the benefit of hands-on the items. This can provide more information and the opportunity to explain more about how the items work from a technical, rather than a practical, point-of-view.
Private Display for Devon & Dorsets MG Platoon, Swindon, UK (October, 2011)
After being contacted by some National Servicemen of the Devon & Dorsets MG Platoon 1960-62, a display of the guns and equipment was put together so they could visit. The opportunity was also taken to have the collection out for a number of weeks so other interested people could visit it.
