Thanks to a grant from Cornwall Museums Partnership (CMP) we were able to commission Tom Goskar, from the Curatorial Research Centre to produce 10 3D scans of objects from our museum displays. The objects give a glimpse in to the variety of objects within our collections, which tell the stories of the Duke of Cornwall’s Light Infantry (DCLI) and Light Infantry (LI) and their precursor regiments.
The range of objects you see below enabled us to tell the stories of the everyday. From the uniforms specifically designed to suit the varying environments the soldiers were fighting in to the equipment they used. From the mementos created by them, to those brought home from conflict zones, the objects chosen give an overview of the collections held by the museum.
