Three Centuries of Tradition and still counting

About

The Museum is the official museum for both the Princess of Wales's Royal Regiment 'Tigers' and The Queen's Regiment and traces the history of the Regiment, direct successor of twelve forebear regiments through four and a quarter centuries of service to the Crown. Starting in 1572 with the deployment of a Tudor company to support the Dutch in their war against the Spanish and the raising of a regiment in 1661 to garrison the North African Port of Tangier, which earned the first ever awarded battle honour 'Tangier 1662-80' a series of displays, interactive videos and recordings takes the visitor right up to the Regiment's most recent operations in support of the UN and NATO in Iraq and Afghanistan.
