Collection, Conservation

The conservation of the Lockheed Hudson Bomber A16-105 has begun in the War Memorial's Treloar workshops, the main aim of the work being the refitting of the upper and lower gun positions, as well as internal fitout of equipment and furnishings and application of a paint scheme more representative of that worn by the aircraft during Second World War service.

The first steps in the conservation will involve the removal of post war modifications carried out by civilian operators, and the manufacture of the upper turret support structure.
