Cornwall's Regimental Museum

A fantastic little museum covering the Local regiments from the early 1700's to the present day .The museum is in the Keep in the town of Bodmin and is well worth a visit .It has a fine collection of weapons and uniforms not only belonging to the Regiment but also it's enemies from the many conflicts it has taken part in and lots of odd things including George Washington's Bible and statues from the far east all "liberated " by the regiment ,there is also the largest piece of the Berlin wall in the U.K .
The War Memorial outside the Keep

This claims to be the helmet of a cavalry man the 1st casualty caused by British troops

A well worn set of Colours with avery moving description board
