The Military Museum in King’s Lynn, is holding a flag designing completion with prizes of £100 cash and £100 gift voucher.

The Museum will be open on Saturday May 2 and feature many activities, such as dressing up as soldiers from various eras, guided tours from our volunteer historians, a shooting experience, a special display of an actual US military Jeep, and the opportunity to enter a brilliant completion.

The competition is to design a flag for the museum, and is open to school children. Under 11s will have the chance to win a gift voucher from the Entertainer for £100 pounds, and over 11s will receive £100 cash, both chosen flags will also be displayed at the museum and will be named after the children. The children will have to come and collect entry forms this Saturday from the museum, and then submit them back by the 30th of May. Winners will get chosen by our special guest panel and will be announced on the 5th of June.

David Chapman, chair of trustees of The Bridge For Heroes said: ‘The museum is a brilliant facility with so many unique hands on interactive activities and experiences. The event this Saturday will offer people the opportunity to experience and learn history in an engaging and interactive way. A day not to be missed.’

The museum, which is located in Millfleet opposite Hillington Square, features several hands on interactive displays and experiences, and most of the time acts as a catalyst to get visiting veterans and their family members to open up about their experiences whilst serving in the armed forces.
