The Desert Rats Museum

Thetford Forest  



The museum is dedicated to telling the story of all those who have proudly worn the Jerboa on their arm since 1940 to the present day and is situated behind the Desert Rats Memorial, at High Ash, on the A1065 two miles north of Mundford, Norfolk, England.
