Welcome To The Website Of The Royal Anglian Regiment Museum.
Our aim is ‘To tell the story of the Regiment and its people’.
The Royal Anglian Regiment is the British Army’s regiment of infantry which covers the ten counties of Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire, Essex, Lincolnshire, Leicestershire, Northamptonshire and Rutland. Each of these counties had its own regiment at one time or another, some tracing their history back to 1685. With the size of the Army reducing in the mid 20th Century various amalgamations took place to form the 1st East Anglian Regiment (1959), the 2nd East Anglian Regiment (1960), and the 3rd East Anglian Regiment (1958). These three regiments, together with the Royal Leicestershire Regiment, were in turn amalgamated to form the Royal Anglian Regiment on 1 September 1964.
The Museum, which is located within the Imperial War Museum Duxford, covers the history of the three East Anglian Regiments from 1958/59/60 and the Royal Anglian Regiment from 1964. Details of the museums relevant to our forebear regiments can be found on the ‘Forebear Regiments’ page.
