Looks like that was a special visit for technical college students, I was wondering if they ever have an open day for the general public to have a mosey about.

I visited the museum a long time ago and found it fascinating - I'll have to get round to paying another visit soon.

I live quite close to Brompton Barracks, but have never been inside. Do they ever have open days?

Looks like you just missed one

And the museum seems to be open to the public as well

The second photograph in Merc's original post shows the South African Arch in the background.

Constructed by G E Wallis & Sons Ltd., Broadmead Products, Hart Street, Maidstone (now part of the Keir Group).

Nothing like keeping it local.

The Duke of Connaught unveiled the Royal Engineers War Memorial at Brompton Barracks on July 19, 1922.

"To Lord Kitchener and the officers and men of the Royal Engineers who fell in the Great War."

After the Second World War the memorial was rededicated to commemorate the sappers who lost their lives during World War II.
