Nostalgia: Farnborough Airshow 1959 (In Colour)


The Farnborough International Airshow is one of the world’s largest aerospace exhibitions and aerial displays. It  is a week-long event that combines an important trade exhibition for the aircraft and defence industries with a public airshow. The event is held in mid-July in even-numbered years at Farnborough Airport in Hampshire, England. The first five days (Monday to Friday) are dedicated only to trade, with the final two days open to the public.

The airshow is an important event in the international aerospace and defence industry calendar, providing an opportunity to show off and demonstrate civilian and military aircraft to potential clients and investors. The show is also used for the announcement of new developments and orders, and to gain media coverage.

Someone uploaded a fascinating British Movieone newsreel video of the Farnborough Airshow during 1959 and in colour! It is an interesting look at the planes, vehicles, and fashion of the people during that time. Thanks to spottydog4477 for uploading this great piece of Farnborough nostalgia on Youtube.

Army Medical Services Museum – An Undiscovered Local Treasure


The excellent Army Medical Services Museum at Keogh Barracks in Mytchett remains open, after the last passing out parade was held at the barracks last month. Defence Medical Services is now located at Whittington Barracks, Lichfield.

The barracks is not closing, and will be modernised over the next two years. The eventual occupants are undecided yet.

The Museum’s Facebook page is full of interesting information, and fascinating historical facts and exhibits. Rounding the corner from one exhibit, an ‘iron lung’, a reminder of the devastating impact of polio. A must see for another visit. Museums are places for quiet contemplation, especially so when encountering the exhibits and stories behind the of the numerous VC’s.

One provision for potential visitors, as the Museum is located inside Keogh Barracks, there’s a security check at the gate, which requests proof of identity. Your photo is taken, and you’re then issued with a photo ID visitors pass.
