Royal Welsh Fusiliers MuseumA rather good Army Museum website, the front page states…….

The museum, situated within two towers of Caernarfon Castle, tells the exciting story of over 300 years of our history using film, sound, models and exhibits.

You can learn how the Regiment won 14 Victoria Crosses and hear the words of famous writers who served with the Royal Welch during the First World War, such as Siegfried Sassoon, Robert Graves, David Jones, Frank Richards and Hedd Wyn. You will also see what life was like for ordinary soldiers and their families and discover the unique traditions of Wales’s oldest infantry Regiment. Since its formation in 1689, the Royal Welch has served  throughout the world. Its history stretches back to the campaigns of William III, and includes the eighteenth century campaigns of Marlborough, the American War of Independence, the wars with Revolutionary and Napoleonic France and the Crimean War. In more recent times, the Regiment has seen action in the Boer War, China, First and Second World Wars and numerous postwar peacekeeping missions including Bosnia 1995.
