The objects in our museum come from many different sources, but the collection itself started through the interests and collections of a few key individuals.

Over time, through diligent collecting, and generous donation, particularly in the years following the First World War, the collection has grown.

The museum itself has always been based in Richmond; starting off with a nomadic life in and around the Regimental depot in Gallowgate, before finding a permanent home in the centre of the town.

Exhibition: The first battle - Ypres 1914

  • 14 October 2014 — 30 April 2015 *on now

When the Green Howards Museum reopens in the autumn, our first exhibition will centre on the battle of Ypres (October and November 1914).

This battle was the last to involve open, mobile warfare on the Western Front, before entrenchment and stalemate set in.

By the end of November 1914 the Green Howards had lost a generation of professional, trained soldiers.

The exhibition will explore the role played by the Green Howards during the battle, and also track the experiences of soldiers and their families through diaries, paintings and personal effects.

The exhibition will run until April 2015.

Suitable for

  • Any age
