Bute Museum bell attends Royal Naval anniversary dinner

The Museum had an unusual request from the Royal Navy, to borrow artefacts from HMS Varbel and the midget submarines for a special dinner to commemorate ‘Operation Source’. Guest of honour at the dinner was Commander Lorimer. Museum volunteers George, Jean and Anne made sure that the bell was well protected for the journey across to Faslane. Two strong submariners got a proper workout getting it out of the museum and into their van!
