The Historic Platoon of Torpedo-launchers and Seamen is the living showcase of the non-profit organisation “The Friends of the Navy Section of the Royal Military Museum”. It commemorates the sacrifices brought by the seamen since 1914 and highlights the part played by the Belgian military navy in the liberation of our country. The platoon does PR work for the Navy and the Royal Military Museum and creates relationships with all associations connected to our naval past.
Its next training session will take place on Sunday 16/04/2017 from 2 till 4 p.m. in the Great Hall.
On Monday March 20 a delegation of Russian museum curators and university scientists visited the Royal Military Museum in view of a possible collaboration. The delegation was particularly interested in our Napoleonic, 19th century and First World War collections, as well as in the newly extended gallery containing the treasures of imperial Russia.
