Talk on weapons, artifacts set for Aviation Museum

January 02. 2013 10:22PM

LONDONDERRY - Doug Culver will discuss World War II artifacts and equipment used by soldiers during a Saturday, Jan. 12 presentation at the Aviation Museum of New Hampshire, 27 Navigator Road.

The museum will open at 10 a.m.

Culver's presentation will begin at 11 a.m. and is included with regular admission to the museum. Seating will be limited due to the volume of material that Culver brings with him, and people will be admitted on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Culver is a board member with the Fort Devens Museum in Ayer, Massachusetts. He has been an ardent student of the war since his teens and he has assembled a wide array of weapons, equipment and materials that were employed by US Paratroopers, Army Air Corps, Marines and Army Infantry personnel.

Not only will handling of objects be allowed, Culver encourages people to expand their understanding by touching many of the artifacts that were carried into battle by Allied soldiers.
