The museum is delighted to announce that we shall have a new temporary exhibition on loan from the Royal Armouries from 4th July to the 3rd September 2018.

‘Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and the case of the steel-plated soldier’ is a fascinating look at a little-known aspect of Conan Doyle’s life. Although famous for writing the Sherlock Holmes novels, most people are unaware of his campaigns to develop body armour for the soldiers in World War 1. The Royal Hampshire Regiment is delighted to be hosting this exhibition as Sir Arthur’s son, A.A.K Conan Doyle (known as Kingsley) served with the Hampshire Regiment and was injured during the Somme.

Free entry.
