I made another visit to the Green Howards Museum in Richmond North Yorkshire last week.
I have visited many times as this is my "local regiment" but this time I decided to take my camera and photograph a few of the South African exhibits.
The medal room is quite impressive but quite dark and obviously behind glass so I had to eliminate flash and shoot at a high ISO film speed, unfortunately this causes camera shake so apologies in advance for the poor quality.
It really is a superb museum, well worthy of a visit if in the area, I hope the pics are of interest to the forum.

Paul,

These are excellent pictures. You ought to be on the marketing team for the Museum!

I especially like the hint of a VC in the last image.

Many thanks
