Helston Museum’s Exhibition on the Great War

I had the pleasure to be invited to the official opening of a new exhibition by Helston Museum on the Great War. It was a fascinating display of items and pictures of the Great War that focused on the local area. It includes many photos of the long-gone Royal Navy Air Station Mullion.

This exhibition was officially opened by the Mayor of Helston who thanked all who had made this display possible. I can echo those words of thanks to everyone who made this exhibition possible.

For me, one of the best items on display an actual Royal Navy White Ensign that was at the actual Battle of Jutland which was flown by one of the ships that took part in that action. A real piece of Royal Navy history. Amazingly, I was told that this Ensign was tucked away in a cupboard at the museum, and it only came to light when research was being carried out for the exhibition.


Anyone from the area should really visit this exhibition. There really is no excuse not to, as entry to the museum and exhibition is free! The exhibition is on until the end of November.
