Photo Archives

Duke-of-Lancaster's-CrestTE

The Museum holds a treasure-trove of thousands of mainly-photographic images which tell the story of our regiments as they served across the world. Most are unpublished and many are unique.

The archive is vast and the parallel tasks of cataloguing and digitising it will continue for years. As the work progresses the Museum will publish selections as Archive Collections of DVD discs. They will be of interest to Regimental veterans, historians, researchers, authors and family descendants.

All funds raised go towards the preservation and maintenance of the Museum.
