The collection covers the history of this County
Yeomanry Cavalry Regiment from its formation in
1794 to 1945. Special emphasis is laid on the
World War 2 period where the Yeomanry fought at
El Alamein and later took part in the D Day
landings and the crossing of the Rhine (in
swimming tanks). There is also an excellent
collection of Victorian uniforms as well as items
from the South African War and the First World
War. Throughout there are displays of weapons,
medals, pictures, detailed models and audio-
visual displays. The museum is designed to
appeal to the general public as well as military
enthusiasts. Some archives are held on site but
the majority are in the County Record Office
some 500m away.
