602 Squadron Museum
The museum was opened on 22 October 1983 by Marshal of the Royal Air Force, The Lord Cameron of Balhousie. The museum was originally housed in the Rolls-Royce factory at Hillington. When Rolls-Royce moved premises in 2006, the museum transferred to Royal Highland Fusiliers Home Headquarters, on Sauchiehall Street.
The initial museum was constructed with Rolls-Royce Plc permission and knowledge, along with the 2175 (Rolls-Royce) ATC Cadets at Hillington. The artefacts and display material were also gathered by the cadets under the leadership of Flt. Lft. William (Bill) McConnell, who at the time was the C.O. for the cadets.
The museum was given, on long term loan, a civilian version of a Merlin engine, which powered the Spitfire aircraft used by 602. The museums artefacts are on display in the McConnell room, which is in honour of the past President William (Bill) McConnell.
