New Afghanistan/Herrick Gallery – Looking forward in 2015

by | Jun 24, 2015 | Uncategorized | 0 comments

The museum currently has part of the gallery closed for refurbishment as we will be updating our Afghanistan/Herrick gallery. This gallery will show The Rifles’ and their changing roles in Afghanistan from all seven Battalions. Any suggestions or donations for displays are always greatly appreciated.

The picture is a sneak preview of one of our Afghanistan showcases and will tell visitors about The Rifles’ interactions with Afghan locals and culture, focussing on hospitality.

The role of Curator and looking after the museum and its extensive collections and exhibitions has been taken on fully by Melanie Marsh, with Rob Yuill moving to the role of Assistant Regimental Secretary Heritage. We will be looking for an Assistant Curator to support the museum, details of which can be found under Connect
