New Displays for 2020

A new display identifies and explains the wide variety of Intelligence Capabilities, looking at the many and varied component parts that make up military intelligence. 

 

We commemorate the 75th Anniversary of the end of the Second World war with a display that remembers all those members of the Intelligence Corps and other 'Intelligencers' who were released from captivity in Prisoner of War (PoW) Camps and Concentration Camps.  Those who died whilst in captivity during the War are also commemorated.

We will also celebrate our own museum birthday, with 2020 being the 50th Anniversary of the formal opening of the Intelligence Corps Museum in Templer Barracks, Ashford, Kent by Field Marshal Sir Gerald Templer KG, GCB, GCMG, KBE, DSO, on Intelligence Corps Day in July 1970.

2020 also sees the 80th Anniversary of the formation of the modern Intelligence Corps in July 1940.  The museum already illustrates those 80 years in many areas. 

 

New for 2020 is a display that records the 10% of our deaths on operations which have come about through accidents on motorcycles, an important 'Tool of the Trade'.

 

This display features a Norton H16 500cc motorcycle on loan from the National Army Museum, as well as details of each motorcycle-related casualty.
