Monmouth Castle Museum

UK»Wales»Gwent»Monmouth Castle Museum

Monmouth Castle Museum: The museum tells the story of the Royal Monmouthshire Royal Engineers - the only present-day regiment to have survived from the Militia. From a muster in 1539 it evolved into a Posse Comitatus and, after enduring sieges in the Civil War, was a Militia Regiment for two centuries. In 1877 it became a Reserve Engineer Regiment, and in this role has served in the wars of the 20th century. The artefacts on display cover the Militia System, the importance of the Dukes of Beaufort, and such regimental distinctions as the Double Royal title, the colours, the Freedoms, and the present status as Senior Regiment of the Reserve Army. Small sections touch on the earlier defences of Monmouth and its castle (including archaeological exhibits), the Home Front, HMS Monmouth, and the recent wars in the Balkans and Iraq.
