There is a major collection and story told in the City Soldiers Gallery at the Museum of Liverpool, which tells the history of the regiment. It is a story of full time professional soldiers and part time volunteers, family life and ceremony. Members of the regiment have served in two world wars, in Asia, Africa, America and Ireland. There are interactive displays and some research facilities.
