Colonels of the King's Own Royal Regiment
Charles Earl of Plymouth
Never actually commanded the Regiment, as he was serving as a volunteer in Tangier and died from dysentery in Oct 1680, a few days before the Regiment landed. He was regarded as a brave, affable and promising officer and died at the age of 23. His body was embalmed, sent to England and interred in Westminster Abbey.
Only a proportion of our collections are on display at anyone time. Certain items are on loan for display in other institutions. An appointment is required to consult any of our collections which are held in store.
