The history section covers the history of our Regiments from 1685 - 2007.  This section is a work in progress with information being added on a regular basis. We hope to include general history and articles, battles, campaigns, campaigns, biographies and citations.

Virtual Galleries 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. Some are from private collections and from sources in the public domain.

If you do not find the answer to a question in these pages please consider our research service.
