About the museum

The collection traces the history of the Princess of Wales’s Royal Regiment, direct successor of twelve forbear regiments through four and a quarter centuries of service to the Crown.  Starting in 1572 with the deployment of a Tudor company to support the Dutch in their war against the Spanish and the raising of a regiment in 1661 to garrison the North African port of Tangier, which earned the first ever awarded battle honour “Tangier 1662-80” a series of displays, interactive videos and recordings takes the visitor right up to the Regiment’s most recent operations in support of the UN and NATO.
