The Museum of Lend Lease in Moscow

This unique museum was founded by enthusiasts. The exhibition can be found in one of the halls of the Moscow school №1262. The room is full of various exhibits in one way or another related to the Lend Lease program.

Lend Lease was a state program of the United States during the Second World War. In accordance with the program the U.S. supplied its allies (mainly the Great Britain, the USSR, France, and China) with munitions, military equipment, food, and strategic raw materials, including petroleum products.

    Dear Sirs,

    My name is Jakub Ciechanowski, I am assistant of the Museum of the Polish Arms in Kołobrzeg. http://muzeum.kolobrzeg.pl/

    The photos present of boat. I am looking for the answer where it was made.

    According to authors of the exhibition the boat is a US device in Soviet service due to the Lend lease.

    May You help us telling something more on the origin of the piece of history?

    Best regards
    Jakub Ciechanowski

    I have found the site of this museum. According to it, this is an English rescue boat that was part of the parachute kit of naval aviation pilots.
