Our permanent gallery tells the 21st Century stories of The Rifles, from the forming in Iraq through to recent work in peace keeping, training foreign forces and anti-poaching.

Packed with personal items and individual soldiers’ accounts, it is a meaningful experience for all to enjoy and explore.

Including a mixture of portraits, freedom and friendship gifts and presentation pieces, this display will look at why military organisations commission and collect art, and how painting can be used during the recovery and rehabilitation of injured Riflemen.
