The Museum houses a range of old musical instruments which have been used in military bands over the years, some of which developed into the instruments in use today. Some, on the other hand, fell into disuse as other,better inventions came long in their stead. Below is a selection of the items currently on display.
Amongst the most interesting historical exhibits are:
Trumpet, spurs and medals of Trumpet Major Gray of the 8th Hussars, carried at the Charge of the Light Brigade in the Crimea, 1854.
The Museum holds the stand banners and drums of many of the regimental bands which have long since disappeared into the history books.
Kettledrum Banner of the 21st Lacers, along with a model of the regiment's mounted band illustrating how the banner was used.
There is an extensive collection of model bands, painted by the late Harry Harding MBE.
