I can remember visiting this in the mid 80's as a kid it was located in the mine were the bouncing bombs etc were stored and had one of the only known surviving LRDG Chevy wagons left(it had been uncovered in Lybia?. Anyone know what happened to both the museum and and Chevy?

Used to love that place - I might still have a guidebook at my mum and dad's.

Closed down a long time ago - early 1990s ISTR.

Hi,

The chev. is now in the IWM, London, (where it can't go rusty, unlike in the underground museum).

Best Regards,

"What's the "boat" at Mostyn? When I lived in Colwyn Bay and went by train to Chester, I recall seeing a small ex-RN vessel moored up in a creek somewhere near Flint... This was back in the 1970's.

Hi,

It was called The Grange Cavern Military Museum.

The link is to a ebsite with a copy of their old flyer, with a map to get there at the bottom, although I think the A55 is not in the same place.

If that boat is the "Duke of lancaster)? then its the one that took us to Belfast for the first time, sailed out of Heysham if memory serves me right,bloody awful trip.

Ayah right. The Holywell/Mold area IS very purty.......except for all the Welsh! But it's ok, the Scousers and Mancs are creeping in and diluting it
