The history section covers the history of our Regiments from 1685 – 2007, with information being added on a regular basis. Virtual Galleries are available on the museum website, covering the regiments’ part in the Gallipoli Campaign (WWI), the Middle East Campaign (WWI)and the Battle of the Somme (WWI) are in place but please note that these galleries were created externally and that not all images shown are from the Museum collection.
