The Suffolk Regiment Museum

Suffolk Regiment cap badge

The Suffolk Regiment Museum was established, in the Officers Mess, for the 250th Anniversary of the Regiment in 1935. The first acquisitions were items which belonged to even older collections of badges, medals and uniform items which had been displayed in the Mess since before The Great War.

Throughout the 1940s and 1950s the Museum was a working museum in which Suffolk Regiment recruits would go to learn the history of their Regiment. In 1968 the Museum moved to its current location in The Keep.
