These sporting medals were found in excellent condition amongst the possessions of late QMSI Gordon Howard APTC. Gordon transferred into the Corps during World War II in 1940, serving 22 years, many of them at the ASPT Aldershot.

With thanks to his son Mr Bruce King for his very thoughtful donation of these objects to the RAPTC Museum.

Object of The Month

The RAPTC Museum would like to thank SSI Zoe Leeming-Watts for recently donating her WNBF Pro Gladius trophy (and others) to the museum.

Certainly an eye catching object and testament to both Zoe and the Corp's dedication to modern sport.

Object of The Month

This Christmas tin was gifted to a member of the Army Gymnastic Staff (AGS), in December 1899 while serving in South Africa during the Boer War. Inscribed are the words, "I wish you a happy New Year Victoria R." Queen Victoria's Christmas tins were gifted to soldiers serving during the protracted campaign in order to raise morale among troops away from home.

Now just as then, members of the RAPTC continue to spend the festive period away from family and friends.
