Nuclear Community Remembrance Virtual Museum Project

The Gary Bennett Collection

Gary first came to prominence during his association with the original BNTVA’s successful Recognition Campaign. From a chance meeting between friends in common Gary teamed up with the then  Chairman, Nigel Heaps MBE, and was inspired to produce a series of fine art pieces reflecting the story of our Nuclear Test Veterans. are indebted to Gary for sharing these remarkable images with our visitors.

The pieces Gary produced were the central core of the ‘Shadow of the Bomb’ art exhibition that was used to raise awareness of the campaign. Touring Westminster, Oxford Street, The Isle of Man, Coventry and the Labour Party conference in Brighton the exhibition gave the campaign access to key political figures and was undoubtedly a major factor in securing Government recognition of the veterans and the creation of the Aged Veterans Fund.

In 2018 Gary donated one of his original nuclear veteran inspired artworks to the Centre for the Health Effects of RC at Brunel University London.
