Volunteers - "G for George"

Volunteers have made a significant contribution to conservation of "G for George" and other objects in the national collection. These are men and women with particular skills, skills in the metal fabrication area, welding, spray painting and machinists. These skills are utilised together with a strong commitment to conservation and cultural sensitivity. Volunteers come from a diverse background and, "are here because they want to be here". It is an opportunity to work in a unique museum environment. We would like to hear from people who are patient enough to spend a few hours cleaning and preparing the numerous bits and pieces that go into making up an historic aircraft, vehicle or artillery piece.
