Following on from the Museum's collaboration in 2022 with The Royal Marines and South West Water for Armed Forces Day, we have gone a step further and facilitated a much bigger event also including the Royal Marines, The British Legion, the Air Cadets, other youth groups from Exmouth and local collector and historian Simon Fogg.

The road is closed for the day enabling street stalls and parades. A Deputy Lord Lieutenant of Devon, Brian Wills-Pope, will be taking the Salute to the Flag after the Reveille at 11:55.

The new Mayor of Exmouth, Olley Davey, will also be taking a leading part.

Also on display will be a WWll Jeep, a camouflage Jeep and a WWll motorcyle. Simon Fogg will be showing his large collection of armaments from the Dalditch Camp.

The Museum will be open all day - until 16:00 at a reduced cost of £1 and children will be free as usual.  There will be a Raffle, refreshments from the Exmouth Arms and the Exmouth Town Band will provide the music.
