We want to record the experiences of The Rifles on operations since 2007, from the perspective of Riflemen and their families. If you or a member of your family is serving or has served in The Rifles, we need your support. We would like to collect any items of kit, communications you have written or received, blogs or video diaries you have made – anything that tells the story of your experience with The Rifles. This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Emails/letters/postcards/cards/blueys/e-blueys/photo-blueys to and from family and friends
  • Poems/art/films/short stories inspired by your experiences
  • Diaries/journals/video-diaries/blogs/v-blogs
  • Photographs
  • Travel documents
  • Uniform/kit items/insignia
  • Aide memoires
  • Books and magazines you read
  • iPhone/iPod playlists
  • Gifts or goods you returned with
  • Names of places within FOBs and temporary signage
  • Accounts/experiences from families of those serving

The Rifles Museum is very grateful to those who give items or accounts to add to our collection. We are obliged to make sure that every acquisition is in line with our Collection Policy, and that we have the resources to conserve and store each item properly. As a result, it is not always possible for us to accept every object. However, in the event that we cannot accommodate your gift, we may be able to suggest an alternative recipient, giving priority to our associate museums, so please do contact us if you have something you would like to give.
