As you enter the museum you are greeted by an impressive display of Regimental drums stacked as though for a Drum-Head Service, in front of the Colours of the 4/5th Battalion, which in turn are guarded by a drummer.

In the main room we trace our history through the famous battle of Minden in 1759 and some of the many ‘small wars’ (eg Burma and South Africa) which dominated the 19th century. Learn about the battle of Taku Forts in 1860 where members of the 67th (South Hampshire) Regiment won 4 Victoria Crosses. Discover why Private Thomas Lane actually has two VCs and how Lieutenant Lenon was so hard up he tried to pawn his, only to have it purchased by his brother officers.
