Visit Firepower, The Royal Artillery Museum

Originally established in the 19th century, and previously housed at the Rotunda on Woolwich Common, Firepower is the Museum of the Royal Artillery and has been at its present location in the Royal Arsenal since 2001.

The collection uses weaponry and military artefacts to tell the story of the Royal Artillery from the 16th Century to the present day. The museum also holds a fascinating collection of military medals - which are possibly of more interest to your author than others - but also some brilliant audio-visual displays and historical context.

It's well worth the £5.30 for a ticket, and you can find out all about it at http://www.firepower.org.uk/.
