Following extensive refurbishment the The Regimental Gallery of the King's Own Yorkshire Light Infantry re-opened in 2010 in the Doncaster Museum and Art Gallery. The gallery displays an excellent collection of regimental memorabilia, uniforms, uniforms, pictures and silver dating from the raising of the Regiment in 1755 to its amalgamation into The Light Infantry in 1968 and then into The Rifles in 2007. It includes a model of the Pontefract Barracks, the Roll of Honour of the 5th Battalion and one of the most extensive medal collections in this country. A list of the medals awarded to soldiers serving with the KOYLI which are held in the Regimental Museum at Doncaster Museum and Art Gallery is shown on the museumís website. Although the KOYLI Gallery is housed in Doncaster Museum, enquiries relating to the archives of the Regiment should be addressed to: The Regimental Secretary, Light Infantry Office (Yorkshire), Minden House, Wakefield Road, Pontefract, WF8 4ES.
