MacClellan Hall Visit

The Museum Of The Manx Regiment

Old Comrades Association (O.C.A.), 15th (Isle of Man) Light A.A., Regiment R.A. (T.A.)

On the 22nd May 2001 members visited the MacClellan Hall at Tromode, Douglas, home of the Museum of the Manx Regiment. (Please note that as of May 2005 this Museum has been moved to our own Manx Aviation and Military Museum.) 

About a dozen MAPS members attended with family members and were treated to a talk on the history of the regiment during the Second World War. Afterwards we were free to browse around this excellent museum showing the history of the regiment in detail, documentation of every theatre of operation, photographs, maps, memorabilia and models, with the centre piece being a 40mm Bofors gun. It was truly a superb evening and it is amazing how much can be held in such a small building.

All visitors were made very welcome by Old Comrades of the Regiment who were in attendance.
