    Broadcaster and historian Dan Snow has signed as a Trustee of The Tank Museum.

    Known for his work on the BBC and as a published author, the 33 year old Oxford graduate will sit alongside the other members of the Dorset museum’s governing council.
    Dan said; “Britain has the best heritage sector in the world and this is one of the finest examples of a Museum in Britain – and working with a world class organisation is very exciting for me.
    “Anyone who is interested in military history cannot fail to be fascinated by the tank,” Dan said. “The Tank Museum preserves this extraordinary machinery and tells the story of the people that served with it. The tank has changed the way in which warfare is conducted – and changed the world.”

    “I’m really looking forward to helping the Museum pioneer engagement with the wider world through the range of opportunities new media presents,” he added.

    Tank Museum Director Richard Smith said; “Our trustees are drawn from a wide range of professional backgrounds and are responsible for steering and approving museum policy. As a registered charity, this expertise is invaluable in helping the museum continue to grow and prosper.”

    “Dan is a leading light in the field of military history, and we are grateful for the support and guidance that will follow from his association with us,” Richard said. “Dan makes history exciting and accessible for everyone – and we are really looking forward to working with him.”
