While access to artefacts, archival materials, and library materials not currently on display in our galleries is restricted, requests to view any of these materials for research purposes will be considered. Museum staff and volunteers will assist interested persons with research related to the items in our collection. We can also assist with research related to an individual’s previous military service, medals, uniforms, war grave and burial information, etc.
For those requiring assistance in a research project, please contact us in advance with details of your request. We will consider your request and let you know what assistance we will be able to provide.
