ARMISTICE: A TIME TO REMEMBER

Crowd numbers for last Sunday's Armistice Day service swelled to more than 1500 and included The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall. After attending the moving Armistice Day service, Prince Charles met with a special group of veterans in the Museum's Members' Lounge. The Museum was also privileged to share two special collection items with The Prince of Wales - a rare copy of the Highgrove Florilegium and Sir Edmund Hillary's expedition diary.
