The Journey Begins….

The four HMS New Zealand artefacts, destined for the National Museum of the Royal Navy, have begun their journey from Devonport to Portsmouth. Mike & Derek from Global Specialised Services collected the objects from the museum collection store and carefully packed & loaded them into their truck. They will be taken to be crated for their flight to the UK next week. It was with excitement, and yet trepidation, that a temporary farewell was said to the piupiu, bell hanger, Jutland honours board and Queen Mary ringbolt. The next time the Collection Manager will see them is in just over a week’s time when they are unpacked at the Royal Navy Museum for installation into the exhibition ‘36 Hours: Jutland 1916, The Battle That Won the War’.
