Thank you very much....I would very much liked to have seen this exhibition.
One of THE great quality makers, a man with excellent taste and a wonderful sense of line and style.

It's not huge … and it is a council museum … but nice to have some things on view for people to see.

Here are a couple of photos I've taken. I don't see any harm now, in that you probably live hundreds if not thousands of miles away, and there's only a week or two of the exhibition to go ?



The iconic photo, in the entrance hall, just as we were setting up



Details on the International Exhibition, the book of letters, and AH certificates



Some panels on the walls



The three rifles on display



Some of Henry's personal medals, and details on the Volunteers

There are other views I need to take photos of, and I'll add them later.

The video is running on a loop too.

The case in the Museum entrance hall contains The Henry Challenge Vase (its first public outing for … maybe a century?), a silver salver made to commemorate the Royal Review of 1860 by the builders of the staging used at the Royal Review in Queen’s Park in 1860, and a QERV busby … not necessarily THE busby as worn in the iconic Henry portrait photo.
(Sorry to say two light bulbs are currently out in the case).
