MACHINE guns and medals were among the military exhibits on display at the Town Council Museum on Saturday.

Roger Money’s WW2 Vickers machine gun was among the highlights as people aged nine to 90 came along to the free event from 10am to 4pm.

Around 140 visitors looked over the military weapons and collectables dating from 1750 to 1980.

Mr Money, 73 of Daventry, who exhibited his collection, said: “It is my hobby of a lifetime and I have been collecting for 60 years now.”

Museum curator Rod Viveash, also of Daventry, added: “It was a very successful day and a lot of interest from families and children.”
