Social and Personal Items

The Museum holds a vast array of sailor's possessions, memorabilia and keepsakes.  These everyday, familiar objects reveal to us our sailors' stories in an emotive and personal way.

Military issue items within this collection include identity cards, pay books, ration coupons, and information pamphlets.  Recreational and social objects such as collecting cards, games, prayer books, model ships, and letters home, tell us how our sailors passed their time both at sea and ashore.

Our sailors' precious written memories, such as diaries, journals and scrapbooks, are also held within this collection.
