Woolwich. Firepower
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

Too bad. I really enjoyed that museum. An old coworker was on the board, I'll have to see what happened.

What was the impetus? I know the rest of the Arsenal area was redeveloped - was there pressure for more development?

As far as I know that was the cause

Too far off the beaten tourist track, being south of the Thames & in East London. You had to be really interested in what was there to go.

Shifting it to Larkhill is just going to make the situation worse!

As an ex-member of the Royal Artillery I can tell you that Larkhill is the favoured choice of the majority of the Regiment. Woolwich was always the spiritual home because of the Military Academy there but if you want to carry out vehicle demonstrations and live firings, then Larkhill is the only real possibility. 99% of the regiment never wanted the museum at Woolwich in the first place and it was only the personal crusade of General Martin Farndale that led to it being located there.

The other reason for Larkhill is that it is 5 minutes from the most visited tourist site in the UK - Stonehenge. Millions of people visit that each year and there is very little else in the neighbourhood. If Larkhill can attract just a fraction of those visitors by offering fire power demos and a really exciting museum it will easily attract more visitors than the Woolwich location. It's also worth remembering that the Tank Museum at Bovington is hardly in the centre of the world and there are several other excellent military museums within a reasonable reach such as the Museum of Army Flying at Middle Wallop and the Fleet Air Arm museum a little further away.

Personally, I think the museum will now be exactly where it should be!
