First class museum , thoughtful coverage of both the Lancashire regiments , and the amalgamated ones into the Duke of Lancaster’s. Great location, at the heart of Fulwood Barracks . Great staff. As you’d expect , more bravery and sacrifice than you could imagine .

I visited the museum recently and was shown round by a very enthusiastic young man. His knowledge was extensive and he showed me many items I would have missed had I guided myself. They deserved the donation I gave them.
