The National Army Museum welcomes Georgina Fell as its new Registrar. Georgie moved to Waiouru from Auckland where she was working for the New Zealand Historic Places Trust (NZHPT) at Alberton, a romantic 19th century mansion located in the suburb of Mt Albert. She also undertook projects at the Thames School of Mines and out of the NZHPT’s Wellington office on Boulcott Street. Last year Georgie also completed her Master’s in Museum and Heritage Studies through Victoria University.
Georgie said “I applied for the Registrar job hoping to gain further experience in a museum environment and also for a new adventure, which it certainly has been. I am living in the Army camp and last night saw a group of armed soldiers in camouflage walk past my house. I am assuming their guns weren’t loaded! I am looking forward to getting my teeth into the job and learning more about New Zealand’s military history.”
When asked about herself, Georgie replied “I am a bit of a film buff and I also love bush walking. I have a cat called Lulu and my favourite food is steak and chips.”
