The King's Own in the Victorian and Edwardian Era
Where the sun never sets
At its peak, the British Empire was the largest the
world had ever known. Soldiers in the British Army posted overseas
played a crucial part in the colonial encounter. The relationships of
people, culture and power defined the era and shaped the world as we
know it today.
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.
