Museum Volunteers

We could not run the museum without the valuable contribution of our enthusiastic volunteers.

Volunteers work front of house welcoming visitors and describing the Museum.  They assist in the Regimental Archives and with research.

Conservation work is carried out by volunteers with the necessary skills.
