Temporary Exhibition 

A History of The Regiment in 100 Objects

16th September until 1st December

All the objects in the exhibition have been personally chosen by Stuart Eastwood, who has curated at the Museum for over 27 years. Stuart will be stepping down from this role in the New Year. His extensive knowledge has provided the framework to the displays with many objects seeming commonplace but highlight an aspect of the Regiment’s history through a single item.

The History of the Regiment in 100 objects is a story told through ordinary objects the oldest being the London Gazette Newspaper from 1703 to the most recent, a specially commissioned painting by artist Stephen Warnes depicting the history of the King’s Own Royal Border Regiment on the 60th anniversary of its formation.

Many of the objects have rarely been seen on display at the Museum and may seem very ordinary or insignificant, but they all play a part in the lives of soldiers and officers of the 34th (Cumberland) Regiment of Foot to the Duke of Lancaster’s Regiment.
