The Fusilier Museum’s collection was established in 1962. Like many Regimental Museums the collection was based on existing Regimental property.
The collection is rich in uniforms, flags, silver and insignia which have help to distinguish the Regiment and create a unique Regimental identity throughout history.
The need and desire of the Regiment to keep records has resulted in the museum having a wonderful archive of photographs, personal letters and war diaries.
Souvenirs, taken from vanquished enemies or bought from exotic campaign locations, are another strength.
The museum is very proud of its medal collection which includes 12 of the 20 Royal Fusilier Victoria Crosses.
The collection also contains a large number of social history objects which refuse to be categorised but which tell the stories of the individual Fusiliers who make up the Regiment’s history.
