The Sandhurst Collection exists to promote military tradition and ethos to the Officer Cadets and preserve the heritage of the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst.
The collection of pictures, silver, decorative art, weaponry, and other objects, foster a sense of military pride and tradition through their display around the academy. Also, in practical terms, the collection supports training to cadet companies and departments, particularly by instruction or exhibition.
The Sandhurst Collection also preserves and manages the archives of the academy. The archives contain records of the academy and its predecessors; the Royal Military College Sandhurst 1799-1939 and the Royal Military Academy Woolwich 1741-1939. It also maintains the archive of the current academy which was established in 1947.
