Happy New Year to you all. The Davidstow Airfield and Cornwall at War Museum has been open for a couple of years now. The official opening by the Commanding Officer RAF St Mawgan was in June 2008 and the Military Vehicle weekend was the last weekend in July as it will be again in 2009. The Museum is open to the public from Easter to the last half term of the year. All three services are covered. There is a dedicated RAF Davidstow Moor display which includes the station log, details of every squadron that was there and a collection of personal recollections. A research facility is in an infant stage. Outside exhibits include Fairey Gannet XG831, a tracked rapier launcher, Green Goddess fire engines, Hawker Hunter relics, wheel fuel cell, Picket Hamilton fort, Sangers and more. The site is under expansion - so, for those of you who have already visited, there will be more next time you come.
The museum is privately owned and completely self funded and like a sponge will soak up any items that you care to donate.
