During the time our artefacts are in Paris, the museum will utilise the space by hosting an exhibition of many of it's unseen artefacts from it's stores and archives.  This will give people an opportunity to view many items which have never been on public display before. The new displays will positioned on the museum’s first floor and will include, unseen artefacts of the SAS and SBS.


The French theme continues for CMSM.  We now have links with the Hotel Lion Verd in Putanges Pont-Ecrepin.  The site of a well recorded, yet largely forgotten Battle for the bridge that helped enable the Allied Forces close the Falaise gap, which defeated the German army in Normandy.  The hotel is in the centre of Putanges, on the site of the battle, approximately 34 miles south of Caen.  In the very near future CMSM will be working in collaboration with Le Lion Verd to provide weekend and mid-week breaks offering accommodation, fine dining, fine wine and military history excursions, including guided trips to the battlefields of northern France and of the lesser visited battle areas south of Caen.
