Attraction in Andover
The Museum of the Royal Army Chaplains' Department reopened in its new
location at Amport House in September 2001, after being in storage for over
five years. Previously it had been located at Bagshot Park, the home of
Army Chaplains' since 1946.
The Museum of Army Chaplaincy houses the archives and historical relics of RAChD and it's chaplains, and unlike most military museums does not include any weapons or ammunition, since the chaplains are non-combatant and their work is to sustain not destroy.
The displays utilise the theme of Faith to tell the story of Army Chaplaincy, in Captivity; in the service of Peace; under Fire; in Uniform and in Teaching the Faith.
Displays include poignant Far East POW items, Church silver and furnishings, uniforms and the stories of the four chaplains who have been awarded the Victoria Cross.
