I've been in touch with the V&A museum of childhood in Bethnal Green London and have arranged a group visit which includes a viewing of some of the AM pieces they hold in the archives (including some Wolf Pack prototype vehicles) for the end of March/early April.

I have pm'd a few people already who I thought would be interested, if anyone is interested in coming along please send me a pm.

Looking for a group of around 15-20, they charge a fee of £150 per group for private viewing of the archives so would be around £10 each depending how many of us are going.

Very Happy

Fantastic Gunner, you will love the museum. Loads of VAM stuff in the display area and plenty of other interesting toys.

How far is the journey for you? No streets paved with gold unfortunately Shocked

Major Bradley is looking the part Steve, very "Wolf Pack"

I think a picture of him on the WP training tower would look amazing!

I think another trip would most definitely be on the cards RT. I'm sure there would be plenty of interest!

I had a message from the museum yesterday to ask if we can re schedule our visit for late March/early April.

Let me know if there are any Sunday's that are not suitable and when we agree a date to suit us all I will let the museum know.

Unfortunately there is only one person that deals with the private viewings of the archives and he is not available until end of March or beginning of April.

Chris, hopefully you might be able to make it along now? Very Happy
