RLC MUSEUM IN SEARCH OF WORK FOR FIRST CONTEMPORARY ART EXHIBITION

The brand new RLC Museum at Worthy Down is due to open in May 2021. Part of the museum will house a temporary, six-month, exhibition. 

The first temporary exhibition, which is due to run from May – December 2021, is ‘The Art of War’. It is a display of art and poetry produced by RLC soldiers and members of the Forming Corps. The Museum is already in receipt of some excellent pieces of work, including poems dating back to the Crimean War of 1855 and trench art, in addition to cartoons and poetry from the two World Wars.

Museum Director, Major (Retd) Simon Walmsley MBA MA, is now looking for more contemporary exhibits to add to the exhibition, from serving and former members of the Corps. The types of artwork that can be submitted include:

If you or somebody that you know has any artwork that could be contributed, either on loan or as a donation, please get in touch with the museum by emailing: information@rlcmuseum.com

Congratulations to RLC soldier LCpl Stu Elvin of the Mission Training and Mobilisation Centre (MTMC), Bassingbourn Barracks, who has received two bronze medals at the World Rowing Indoor Championships 2021. LCpl Elvin has represented the Army in rowing for a number of years. Having individually qualified at the British Championships for the Men's (age 30-39) 500m to race at the World Championships, he was also selected to represent the Armed Forces in the Men's Team race. The races took place on 23 Feb 21, where LCpl achieved third place in his individual race and an hour later, he received another bronze medal as he played an integral part of the Armed Forces Men's Team. His commitment and success in rowing is nothing short of impressive with his ability to balance work, training and family life along with the ongoing restrictions of COVID-19. Competing in any sport at this level requires a unique strength and determination – something which the LCpl displays in abundance, putting in hours of solitary training, where he has had to use his mental resilience to push himself further than most would. ...
