ITP Insight Event: Blandford Museum visit

Title ITP Insight Event: Blandford Museum visit
Organiser The ITP

ITP Members will be stepped through a hundred plus years of signalling history, from shutter telegraphs through cable wagons, despatch riders, and World War II radios to Enigma machines and beyond. Special sections are devoted to the SAS, the conflicts in the Falklands, the Gulf, and Afghanistan. There are plenty of hands on exhibits to try, which really helps illustrate and explain how things work. A fine collection of medals is on display demonstrating the gallantry of members of the Royal Signals regiment over the years.

A fascinating museum with plenty of exhibits telling the story of signals in the British armed forces through to modern day, including the Special Operations Executive (SOE) in WWII.  After the guided tour, you will be guided around the Royal Signals Cable Systems Group where you will be shown the teaching facilities and cover the syllabus that the soldiers are being taught.

This is a unique opportunity to receive a guided tour of the museum and see behind the scenes of the cable systems group – access which has never been granted before. 

As such there is a small charge to the ITP of £10 per head and would therefore ask attendees to contribute £5.

Thank you
