    The Royal Marines Museum may have been a good reference place in the past, but it closed back in 2017. Since then two bids to heritage Lottery Fund by National Museum of the Royal Navy (NMRN) for a grant in support of the planned replacement RM Museum in the naval dockyard have both failed. On the plus side, within the last few weeks it has been announced that the old RM Museum site has at last been sold, which should provide some of the money needed, and we must hope that work may start on the new RM museum some time soon. Unfortunately it is reported that NMRN’s overall finances have been hit by Covid fall-out, like so many museums, so the way forward is not as clear as it might be.
