Take on a challenge this Easter at the Royal Logistic Corps Museum at Worthy Down. Find the food hidden around the Museum to complete the trail, then design dinner for a soldier. What will you decide to create? The best plate of food, as judged after Easter by our hungry, hungry office staff, will win a prize!

Entrance to the Museum is free and it costs just 50p per child to take part in the trail. The trail will be available throughout the Easter holidays during Museum opening hours. The RLC Museum is open Tuesday – Saturday, including Good Friday, from 9.30am to 4pm (last entry 3.30pm). Please note – we will be closed on the morning of April 2nd due to a planned power outage. The Museum will open at 12 noon on April 2nd.

Maternity in the Military – due 2024

Later this year, a new exhibition exploring the changing face of maternity in the military launches at the The RLC Museum and we need your help. The Museum is seeking stories and objects from members of the Corps to bring to life the exhibition.

Prior to 1990 pregnant servicewomen wishing to have their child had to leave the forces, and many women made difficult choices between career and children. Following the introduction of maternity leave for servicewomen, the army has developed its maternity, shared parental and adoption leave polices, and redesigned its maternity wear several times.

The new exhibition, opening later this year, will tell the stories of the servicewomen who had to choose between parenthood and their profession, the development of army maternity packages and the experiences of army parents to the present day.

The Museum wants to hear from you! Can you share your experience as a servicewoman making decisions involving family and work? Your experience as a pregnant servicewoman? Your experience as a new mother from a military background? Or your experience as a military parent (of any gender) and early parenthood?

Loans or donation of objects for the exhibition, including (but not limited to) maternity uniform, documents, photographs and letters are also gratefully received, and any cap badge is welcome.

If you have anything that may be of interest please email us at information@rlcmuseum.com or complete our online form before June 9th.

Visit the Temporary Tour T-Shirt Exhibition

RLC T-Shirt Temporary Exhibition

The RLC turned 30 years old in 2023. Throughout its 30 years, it has constantly had soldiers deployed on operational tours or on exercises overseas. The museum intends to capture this story and these many deployments using “tour t-shirts”. Today, no operational tour or exercise would be considered complete, without the design and distribution of a tour t-shirt. Squadrons or Regiments normally hold competitions to seek the best design, with the command team making the final choice. These t-shirts capture the time, location, unit name, activity and spirit of the soldiers deployed and are a unique record of the corps history.

The RLC Museum has over 90 T-Shirts on display in its new temporary exhibition.

Heritage Open Days are back in 2024!

The RLC Museum will be taking part in Heritage Open Days for the fourth year running, putting on a variety of free events and activities for the public. Follow us on social media to be the first to find out about talks, tours and behind the scenes visits, as well as how to sign up for them.
