The Worcestershire Soldier exhibition tells the story of the men of the Worcestershire Regiments from 1694 to the present.

These soldiers lived and sometimes died in the defence of the country and its interests overseas. Using archive film, memories and the unique collections of The Worcestershire Regiment and Worcestershire Yeomanry, this display brings over 300 years of military history to life.

The Worcestershire Soldier is run by the Mercian Regiment Museum (Worcestershire) Trust and we are a Registered Charity no 276510.
