Collections Across the County

Mapping Cornwall’s DCLI Collections

While we hold the largest collection of objects and archives relating to the Duke of Cornwall’s Light Infantry (DCLI), we’re aware that there are many other places across the County that have material relating to the Regiment.  So, to help researchers and family historians, we asked other Cornish museums and archives to tell us what they have and we’ve published the lists here.

And here are links to simple lists of the DCLI Material held in other collections across Cornwall.  Please note that many of the items listed will be in store and not currently on display, so you’ll need to contact the organisation to make an appointment in advance if you want to see it.  Also, the text of the lists is small so you’ll need to zoom in to increase legibility.
