The Regimental Collection
The Regiment's Collection of its treasures has never been comprehensively displayed, principally through a lack of suitable secure space. It is now on show in the Land Warfare Hall of the Imperial War Museum at Duxford airfield, through the generosity of the Trustees of the IWM, alongside the Royal Anglian Regiment Museum. The Collection also has a display in the Suffolk Regiment Museum at Bury St Edmunds. There are items of regimental interest in the Fly Museum hut, generally, they are not part of the Collection.
The Regiment's Archives are with Cambridgeshire Heritage at the County Record Office at Shire Hall, Cambridge. Would-be researchers should telephone the County Archivist on 01223 717281 for an appointment.
he Collection, although well-established at Duxford, has a continuing need for funds, to maintain standards and to be able to acquire further memorabilia which may become available on the open market.
Any Visitor wishing to make a donation towards the costs of the Collection may do so in one of two ways:
By hand to the Royal Anglian Regiment's Museum Attendant.
By post to the Collection at the Headquarters, Denny End Road, Cambridge, CBS 9QU.
Cheques should be made payable to:
'The Royal Anglian Regiment Museum
- or for brevity:
'R Anglian Museum Trust (Cambs)'.
