The Vickers MG Collection & Research Association Displays


Given the breadth of the VMGCRA collection, loans of items not readily required are available to established and reputable locations that can offer appropriate levels of security and responsibility.

Swindon in the Great War, Swindon Museum and Art Gallery, Swindon, UK (September 2014 to January 2015)

Following conversations with the Swindon in the Great War team, the VMGCRA was asked to provide a Vickers for display at the Swindon Museum and Art Gallery as part of the temporary exhibition the team were putting on there. The Museum is run by Swindon Borough Council, yet the exhibition was created independently.

Details of the exhibition can be found here.

A few photos of the display are below:
