Suffolk Regiment Museum
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
The displays cover the entire history of the Regiment, with artefacts as diverse as a powder flask made from rhinoceros horn, used by the Tippoo of Mysore, to the first German flag captured in WWI (seized from the Governor's headquarters in Togoland in 1914).
There is a large collection of military drums and captured weapons, and, as you might expect, a sizeable collection of insignia and badges.
The museum has limited opening hours so it is best to check the official website for current opening times.
