Doc Davies was quite a character. He was an officer in the Gurkha Regiment and they came to his funeral! Thanks for taking the time to post your review. Much appreciated.

We visited this museum last August and then again this April. It is continuing its evolvement into a really good museum. Promoting reminiscing and happy family memories. Well worth a visit.
