Our Archives and Object collections are open to the public to access and research. In order to do this, you will need to book an appointment during opening hours, details of which can be found on the Home page.

We are currently closed to the public as we complete the relocation to Lyneham. Once we are able to help with enquiries we will update the information on this page. Please be aware that there will be associated costs for enquiries.

Family History

The Museum offers an ‘Interpretation Service’ of military records of service. By using the record of service obtained from the Ministry of Defence (MoD) Army Personnel Center, together with added material from the Archives and general references on Army history, we are able to produce a ‘potted’ history of the person’s time in the Army.

The Archives do not hold information on individuals, these are held centrally by the MoD. If you would like to have an interpretation done, you will need to contact the MoD directly. Records of Service are only released to family members. Details on how to access the records can be found by following the link below:

There is a fee for this service, details of which will be posted above once the Museum is able to start accepting enquiries.
