War Trophies in Lancaster between the Wars.
Soldiers have always brought home souvenirs from their travels, both in peace and war. Most are small souvenirs and are the sort of thing that you would find in the museum's collection. Some are a bit larger and brought back, distributed and display with a bit more effort and permission from the authorities.
Lancaster was like many other towns and at one time you were able to find souvenirs from the Crimean and First World Wars.
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.
