A private visit to York Army Museum has been arranged for Thursday 29th November, to which both Society members and non members are invited.
The Museum, which offers visitors a unique experience, curates the history of two current serving regiments of the British Army: The Royal Dragoon Guards and The Yorkshire Regiment. One cavalry, one infantry; each of these regiments can trace its history back over three hundred years. Both have a historic connection to Yorkshire and its people.
Our visit will start with a welcome presentation where we will find out what The Yorkshire Regiment has been doing and what the future holds for our County Regiment.
This will be followed by drinks and a finger buffet.
We will then take a tour of the Museum which will include getting to grips with classic weapons of the past and, to tie in with the 100th anniversary of the end of WW1, an opportunity to get close to WW1 medal collections, including the Yorkshire Regiment’s Victoria Cross winners.
The Museum is located at 3 Tower Street, York, YO1 9SB, next door to the Hilton Hotel and close to Clifford’s Tower.
It is a 15 minute walk from the Railway Station and parking is available across the street which has a one-off charge of £2.50 after 6pm.
COST, TIME and BOOKING:
The cost of the visit is £15 for Yorkshire Society Members and £20 for non-members. Please arrive in time for a prompt 6.30pm start.
