Our Military Family

Our Regiments

The museum’s collections tell the stories of two former regiments – the Duke of Cornwall’s Light Infantry (DCLI) and the Light Infantry (LI). These regiments no longer exist operationally but are very much alive for the soldiers, officers and families who served with them. It’s our job to keep the heritage of these regiments alive and share their stories with as many people as possible.

Our museum building, The Keep, is the historic home of the DCLI regiment and is filled with superb collections that tell its story.  Find out more about the DCLI here.
