This new museum opened in March 2010.
The collection covers the history of services of
the 41st and 69th Regiments of Foot from 1719
until 1969 when The Welch Regiment amalgamated
with others to form The Royal Regiment of Wales
and in 2006 became The Royal Welsh. The 41st Foot
was originally formed of Out Pensioners from the
Royal Hospital Chelsea and titled Sir Edmund
Fielding's Regiment of Invalids. In 1787 the
title Invalids was abandoned and the 41st became
a marching Regiment of The Line. In 1881 it was
joined by the 69th Regiment of Foot and became
The Welch Regiment.
The joint exhibition also includes the regimental
collection of 1st the Queens Dragoon Guards. This
reflects the long history of Wales's only regular
cavalry regiment, 1st The Queen's Dragoon Guards
which began its formal existence on January 1st
1959, this being the day when the 1st King's
Dragoon Guards was amalgamated with the 2nd
Dragoon Guards, better known as the Queen's Bays.
