The Collection was started in 1988 by Michael Savory & his father at a derelict military camp at Weybourne in Norfolk. Some military vehicles had previously been obtained following their experience in establishing a small military display at Inveraray in Scotland. Michael Savory was a stockbroker & later became Lord Mayor of the City of London. He was Honorary Colonel of The London Regiment & a Council member of a leading military charity for a number of years. His late father, Squadron Leader Berry Savory, served in the RAF during WW2. After the Battle of Britain, while on the staff of Combined Operations, he was involved in the planning & training for the invasion of North Africa & Europe.
The Museum has a large collection of photos contributed by various photographers over the years. Our thanks especially go to Joe Bridge for his extensive contribution to the Gallery
