Archival material and objects are displayed and held at York Army Museum. The collection is incredibly varied and includes 5 Victoria Crosses, upwards of 3500 other medals, firearms, swords, uniforms and personal items of our soldiers. All of this allows us to share the incredible stories of hardship, humanity and comradery that define the history of the Yorkshire soldier.
