BATTLE LOST OVER OLD COMRADES' MUSEUM

THE Manx Regiment museum at Tromode has closed after two decades – but the story of the soldiers' remarkable exploits won't be forgotten.

Since 1986, visitors to the MacClellan Hall have spent many Sunday afternoons marvelling at the memorabilia depicting the contribution of the 15th (IoM) Light Anti-Aircraft Regiment in World War Two.

Over the years the hall has been staffed by members of the Old Comrades' Association during opening times, but with the number of comrades who are able to help out dwindling, a decision was made to move the artefacts to the Aviation and Military Museum at Ronaldsway.
