Special Forces

In May 1980 a secretive and little known unit, the SAS, jumped into the limelight when the Iranian Embassy in London was taken over by 6 terrorists.

The museum displays an amazing collection of ‘Special Forces’ equipment including the uniform or ‘black kit’ used by one of the members of 22nd Special Air Service during the raid to free the hostages.

You can also trace the roots of the Special Forces back to their formation a comprehensive display of uniforms through the ages.
