Magnificent Mini Medals

Remembrance Art Installation

Calling all knitters and crocheters, we are inviting people to be inspired by stories of courage, bravery and comradeship and help us create a mass display of magnificent mini medals inspired by the Museum's medal collection. The mass display of medals will be added to form an art installation around our aircraft in time for Remembrance in November. If you would like to take part you can find a medal pattern by clicking here, a crochet star pattern by clicking here, or a poppy pattern by clicking here.  You can find the crochet pattern by clicking here. Alternatively, you could use your own pattern. The deadline for submissions is the 1st November 2020.

Calling all poets, wordsmiths and writers!

We are inviting individuals and community groups to create their own pieces of poetry inspired by the museum’s stories of courage, bravery and comradeship to be displayed as part of our Magnificent Medals Remembrance art installation in November. All submitted pieces will also be published in a collection of works for people to view on our website and they will form part of a collection of community works.

Submissions should be sent in a PDF file format or Word document. Poems can be in any form, (i.e. stanzas, limericks or spoken word) and should be no longer than 2 sides of A4. They should be themed on remembrance, courage, bravery or comradeship and the Army - in particular, the modern day Army Air Corps, or its predecessors including the Royal Engineers, the Royal Flying Corps, the Glider Pilot Regiment or the Air Observation Post squadrons.

The deadline for submissions is the 1st November 2020. Submissions for the display can be emailed to outreach@armyflying.com or posted to: Army Flying Museum, Middle Wallop, Stockbridge, Hants, SO20 8FB.
