The  Hold

HOLD Noun - cavity in a ship below deck where cargo is stowed. Also the area used to house transmitters on many radio ships.

When looking through the archives for material we often come across articles and items of memorabilia which are relevant to the history of offshore broadcasting, but don’t readily fit the context of existing Museum Galleries.

We feel that this information  should not be lost - or left out of the Museum - so have created this Gallery  as a holding place for relevant material,  available for every visitor to see.

In the future some items may be incorporated into other Galleries, but for the moment new material will be added here whenever we find it.

Enjoy exploring The Hold !!!
