The Military Galleries

Large flag in case to left and cases on right brightly lit. Stoll in centre of walkway.


The Military Galleries at Abington Park Museum tell the story of the Northamptonshire Regiment and the Northamptonshire Yeomanry.


The timeline of the Northamptonshire Regiment and the Northamptonshire Yeomanry records their formation, significant battles and campaigns, home service in Britain and overseas service throughout the world, involvement in major wars, and post war National Service to their amalgamation or suspended animation. Both played important roles in the First and Second World Wars and the Yeomanry story contributes to a wider story of the Territorial Army. The Northamptonshire Regiment was amalgamated and today remains in the Royal Anglian Regiment. The story is told through personal photographs and objects alongside objects issued by the military and more formal military history.

Those who died from the Regiment and Yeomanry during the First and Second World Wars are comemorated in the Memorial Gallery either on memorial wall panels or in remembrance books.
