On the opening of the new Arctic Convoys Museum in Aultbea

In the framework of the commemorative festival in Pool-Ewe arranged by the Russian Arctic Convoy Project on 7th May this year an opening of a new Museum of the Arctic Convoys took place in Aultbea in the bay of Loch-Ewe.

At the opening Consul General of Russia in Edinburgh Andrey A.Pritsepov said: "I hope to see all these important historical places of worship, grief and pride working together in a strong global network aimed at remembering and promoting the strength of human spirit of those who sailed in these legendary Convoys".

Several special gifts were donated to the Museum. These were artifacts commissioned to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the First Convoy: a book with the Arctic Convoys Veterans' stories and an exclusive gift set with the official tartan of the Arctic Convoys both commissioned by the Russian Consulate General, and a mini-copy of the monument to the Arctic Convoys in St Petersburg.

The construction of the new building was made possible largely thanks to donations. Now museum faces a new task – to buy the building into ownership. To find information how to support the Museum and preserve the heritage of the Arctic Convoys, please contact the Museum Administration at http://www.theracmproject.org.
