The Museum Collection

The Museum houses over 10,000 artefacts, photographs and documents. Many items are donated by Ex-Ganges boys or their families. Some items come directly from the site and more are turning up all the time, for which we are grateful but takes time to list.

This page gives an example of some of the wide and varied objects on display at the Museum.  You can only get the true feeling of what HMS Ganges was all about, along with memories of those who trained or served there, by physically visiting the Museum and meeting the Volunteers in person, many of whom were Ganges Boys.
