This regimental museum (8th Hussars, founded 1848) is housed in a former railway station in the centre of Sussex. From this station, many local recruits left to fight in Europe.
The collection focuses mainly on the Great War and WWII but pays hommage to UN Peacekeepering and the Afghan mission as well. Most of the personal artefacts are connected to the regiment. Several dioramas portray conditions lived by combattants, including a WWI trench and an adjutant's tent from WWII.
The tour guide who accompanied us was well informed and obviously engaged with the ongoing development of the collection. Her explanations and anecdotes added immeasurably to our experience. She offered to send copies of a few photographs of the train station and they were waiting for us in email upon our return home.
Definitely worth a visit.

Hayden, the tour guide, did an amazing job. We have visited numerous WW1 museums in France. Today's tour matched or exceeded the best of them. An interesting combination of local history and military service.

This museum is chock full of interesting military artifacts about this local regiment. It doesn't take long to go through and it is well worth a visit. It's part of the visitor's information centre.

We had stopped at the visitor information centre, which is located in the museum. This topic was timely since 2017 is 100 years after the Battle of Vimy Ridge. Very interesting displays.
(And it is right beside a really good ice cream shop!!!)

The 8th Hussars Museum is a small military museum sharing the life of the Regiment from 1848 through to present. The 2017 Vimy presentation was exceptional. The visit was for a hour and it is must to bring a camera.
