Visit to The Royal Welsh Regimental Museum.

On holiday this week, so the Mrs decided she wanted to pop over the Bridge(Severn) to visit some of her relations who live in the Brecon Beacons in Mid Wales(Powys), while we were in the area she suggested we pop into The Regimental Museum of the Royal Welsh which is in Brecon, of course I was well up for this as they have a lot of info on the 24th South Wales Borders which my Great uncle served in during WW1 and are famous for there action in the Zulu Wars.

We had a good hour or so wondering around the exhibits, they had some lovely display units with battle scenes in miniature which I managed to take some nice snaps of.

As you can see they had a lot of focus on the Zulu Wars with these but they did have a few others from other conflicts but I did get any pictures of them I’m afraid.

There was also some nice mannequins of a Zulu Wars British trooper and Zulu Warrior as well as one of the flags from Rorkes Drift.

They obviously had quite a bit of WW1 stuff including a lovely picture of one of the attacks made by the 24th at the Battle of Aisne in 1914, this was of extra interested to me as this Battle was where my Uncle was killed.

I’ve got to say I really enjoyed this little museum and recommend it to anyone who’s interested in the Welsh Regiments from the past and up to the present day.

Cheers, Steve.
