Our Stories

Since the time our story started in 1794, we have been witness to many interesting characters and intriguing events, while at the same time playing a key role in many pivotal moments in British military history. In this section of the website we share the fascinating stories of just a small selection of these people and events. These stories are also available to see on the touchscreens in our museum. If you have a story that you think we should add, please get in touch with our curator.
