New arrival for SWAM!

During the lockown SWAM had a delivery of a new member! XV221 arrived on 7th May!

The plan is to restore XV221 up to museum display standard and restore her to her former glory!

We can't wait to get stuck into her restoration and will be documenting and updating you all with her progress!

Wessex XM833 update

One of our current restoration projects here at SWAM is our Wessex XM833. After arriving at SWAM in May 2019 it was placed in our restoration hangar for our volunteers to work their magic on. Our grouoWessex Team Leader has been working hard on repairing the panels and replacing them. 

As well as work needing to be carried out on the exterior, there is also extensive work to be carried out on the interior of the Wessex. 

We aim to fully restore the Wessex and give her a new paint job. She will then become a permenant exhibition in the museum.

Our Wessex Team leader attends the museum on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. If you would like to join the Wessex restoration team then please pop an email to
