Rapier Surface to Air Missile Launcher

Last week Steve took a "raiding party" of himself, his grandson Bertie and volunteer Martin, to collect a Rapier Surface to Air Missile Launcher for the museum.

Steve and his fellow "raiders" often go up and down the roads of not only Cornwall, but further afield, or "up country" as it is known down here.

Over the years there have been many sightings of a "museum raiding party" on the lanes, roads and motorways of the UK. Strange things, like a lorry with a Hunter jet with it's wings removed and packed along side it travelling down the M5. A trailer with inert, and therefore perfectly safe, torpedoes or bombs. Anything that needs transporting, a "raiding party" goes to fetch it.

Now we have a sign that goes on the back of the trailer or lorry  " Cornwall At War Museum Raiding Party."

So if you see the sign on the back of a vehicle give us blast of your horn and make sure you come to the museum to see the item in it's new home.
