Cornwall Regimental Museum

The Cornwall Regimental Museum is located in the Keep, a former army base in Bodmin, England. The Keep was built in 1859, and it originally served as a supply depot and headquarters for the Cornwall Militia and Volunteers. During World War I and World War II, the base was used as a training facility for soldiers preparing for deployment on the Continent. Today, the Keep serves as a military museum educating visitors on British military history. The Cornwall Regimental Museum display begins with the raising of Fox’s Marines in 1702, and the exhibit ends in present-day British military history. The museum contains over 12,000 artifacts, including medals, Napoleonic Era uniforms, and England’s best small arms collection. The Cornwall Regimental Museum also provides top-tier research facilities that hold over 80,000 records for historians to study.
