The article examines the powerful effect of utilising the soldier's voice rather than text in the Bovington Tank Museum's new exhibition in Dorset, England. It notes that the Bovington Tank Museum made its first step towards meeting this army heritage policy aim with the launch of "The Tank Story," a major exhibition presenting footage and oral accounts from the past century of armoured warfare. The application of an interpretive strategy in the museum is discussed.
