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 now form the ancestry of the current regiment, The Rifles. To find out more about the Rifles visit: www.riflesmuseum.co.uk and www.theriflesnetwork.co.uk.
The museum is strongly connected to its military family past and present and is still home to the County office of The Rifles regiment. We host the annual Light Infantry Association Reunion Day each September. We’re housed in an historic Army building which is currently supported and maintained by the MOD and we also receive support via Army Heritage Branch.
The Light Infantry
Cornwall’s Regimental Museum is the proud home of the national Light Infantry collection, including the LI Archives. Visit our Light Infantry Page to read about the Light Infantry collection, and how former infantrymen can get involved.Light Infantry
