The Bloodhound MKII missile system was a key part of the integrated UK air defences during the Cold War, a wholly British designed defensive weapon to counter nuclear armed, high flying bombers at long range.

Bloodhound MKII became operational with the RAF in 1964 and continued to be improved as new technology became available with its operational role continually enhanced to include the countering of low level air strikes. 

The missile system was withdrawn from RAF service in 1991, at the end of the Cold War. It is only right that such an important part of the UK's Cold War history is preserved for future generations.
