This year represents thirty years since the amalgamation of the Glosters into the Royal Gloucestershire, Berkshire and Wiltshire Regiment. As such, we thought we would make this years Back Badge Day our biggest in many years.

To remember this glorious event the museum will be hosting a re-enactment day. Come face to face with 300 years of history from the Gloucestershire Regiment. We shall have redcoats, Boer War soldiers and plenty of those who served in WWI and WWII. Find out about what it was like to serve in many of the world’s biggest conflicts and what was the experience of the ordinary soldier.

Alongside this event, we shall also have Jack Russell, ex-England wicketkeeper and artist, in the galleries talking to our guests about his latest exhibition.
