ARWMP takes Regent Club Memorial into its care

Also taken in to care recently is this wonderful, extremely heavy metal World War 2 memorial from the Regent Club of Hinckley. When the club closed in 1990 this fine war memorial was destined for the scrap metal merchant, but it was saved by an alert local historian and presented to Hinckley Museum. With walls insufficiently strong to carry it, it was passed in to our care in 2019.

The left hand side shows as it was. The right hand side after a series of gentle washes with warm water. The dark staining on the upper part is due to attempted cleaning with an incorrect material. Unfortunately the cost of a professional cleaning is just too great.
