Taranto 80 - Tales from the Archive: 11th November 2020

Taranto 80 - Tales from the Archive

Come and meet members of the Fleet Air Arm Museum’s Curatorial team as they give mini-talks about hidden gems in our collection.  These include objects, records and in some cases both.  We hope to give you an insight into some of the collection normally held in our museum stores.  Every item in our collection and archive helps put together the jigsaw puzzle of the Fleet Air Arm and wider Royal Navy heritage.  We shall select objects that can tell a story in their own right.

Themes for upcoming events include: -

November 11th

  • Tales of Taranto
  • Relics of Battle of Britain bravery.

December 3rd

  • Trials and Tribulations – FAA test pilots and display teams

Access to these sessions are on a drop-in basis and free with a valid Museum ticket.

Please be aware that staff will not be available to answer individual questions relating to the archive or specific non featured exhibits. Visitors will also be sign-posted to the right resources to answer their family history questions, e.g. the MOD and National Archive.

We are also not able to facilitate acquisition or donation enquiries at these events – enquiries instead should be directed by email to
