"Ways to make Father’s Day one to remember"
Swindon Advertiser.

[We are open Tuesday – Saturday, 10 am – 4.30 pm]

No. 4: "Artefacts as big as a Challenger armoured repair and recovery vehicle and as small as the handful of beach sand caught in the uniform of Pt John Commander during the Dunkirk evacuation of 1940 are on show at the Reme Museum in Lyneham.

The attraction at the gates of the former RAF base close to Royal Wootton Bassett houses more than 100,000 items, including vehicles, radios, modern day kit and trade test pieces. It is open Tuesday to Saturday, 10am to 4.30pm. Visit rememuseum.org.uk for more information."
