We were delighted today to welcome recruits from the #RAPTC All-Arms PTI course to the Museum for a talk and visit. Hopefully some of them were inspired enough to think of joining the Corps!

A fantastic family day at the RAPTC Museum yesterday, great to see the children of the Instructors and Staff enjoying the Museum.

Another new acquisition, Sergeant Instructor Ernie Travers. Keep these pictures of your loved ones (or yourself) in the RAPTC coming in, we would love recent pictures as well as old ones. #RAPTC @RAPTC_Official

#Olympic medals on display in the RAPTC Museum. Their is a great connection between the Corps and the Oympics. Through its history, many of its serving and former members have competed and won medals.

Some more interesting photographs donated, we think these date from the WW2 era and were taken here at the Army School of Physical Training where the Musuem is based
