OMRS Virtual Convention 2024

Virtual Presentations

This year we will be holding the online presentation element of the virtual convention live on Saturday 10th February 2024 at 4pm London time.

We appreciate we are an international Society and that no single time will suit everyone, but for those who are unable to join us live, a recorded version will be available soon after live broadcast.

We have a fantastic lineup of presenters that we believe you will enjoy. They have put significant effort into preparing and your attendance would be welcomed.

Paul Murphy – So you think that was a bargain?
Mick Atkinson – Napoleon’s Legion d’honneur
Roger Bragger – Lawrance’s Airforce
Kevin Clarkson – From Rifle Green to Confederate Gray
Simon Ralph – The Queen’s Scarf

Virtual Exhibition

The virtual exhibition is an important part of the virtual Convention as it allows members who otherwise are unable to share their knowledge, expertise, passion and stories from their collections with other members.

This year, on 10 February, several members put significant effort into creating the exhibits below. Please have a look at them, and reach out to the members if you have any questions.

We thank all of those who took part, and those who were involved in the setup of the website, and hope you enjoy these exhibits.
