Soldiers of Gloucestershire

Soldiers of Gloucestershire: "The Soldiers of Gloucestershire Museum is the only military museum in Gloucestershire and is based in the Custom House in Gloucester Docks, a renowned tourist destination in the ancient cathedral city of Gloucester.

The museum commemorates and displays the history of two famous regiments, one an infantry regiment of the regular army, The Gloucestershire Regiment (The Glorious Glosters), and a territorial cavalry regiment, The Royal Gloucestershire Hussars. Traditionally both have recruited from the County and the surrounding areas including Cheltenham, Cirencester, Stroud, Tewkesbury, The Forest of Dean and from Bristol. Indeed, there are few local families who over the generations have not been associated with either of these regiments."

Soldiers of Gloucestershire: "Fees for research are levied on a not-for-profit basis and used to fund the conservation and maintenance of the Museum and its Archives. The charge for an initial enquiry is £7.50, payable in advance. This is based on an half hour of research for relevant information and the preparation of a helpful and if possible informative response. If there is more information potentially available and therefore more time is needed, you will be told. This may result in a quotation for additional work."
