Chards Revolver Empty
PostSubject: Chards Revolver   Chards Revolver EmptyMon Oct 05, 2009 11:01 pm

Can someone confirm if Chards revolver is kept in the Royal Engineers museum in Chatham Kent?

The reason I ask is I have to make a delivery to Gillingham Kent, which is not far from Chatham, well it doesn’t look that far on the map. So I thought I would take a trip to the Museum, as I would love to see the revolver, If is not there then I won’t bother.

Good Night all.

His service sword and a ceremonial sword given to Colonel Chard, by the people of Plymouth, in 1879,are retained at the Royal Engineers Museum, at Chatham, Kent, together with other memorabilia, such as a second bust, in marble, previously kept at Moredon, North Curry, Somerset; his ash-tray; sword belt plate; officers cane; service water bottle; .38 Webley Revolver, serial number 4O9l6 carried at Rorke's Drift, which together with other Zulu and Chard memorabilia, Illuminated Addresses from Chatham and Brompton, engravings, drawings, portrait and paintings, are all retained at the Museum. In addition, the Royal Engineers Library, also situated at Brompton Barracks contains a wide range of books and photographs.
