Fodor's Review

The military exhibits here span centuries of conflict; some relate to battles in which this regiment and its Welsh predecessors participated. There's a vast collection of militaria, which will be of interest mostly to fans of military history. The 3,000 or so medals on display include 18 Victoria Crosses (the British equivilent of the Purple Heart). The Zulu Room recalls the defense of Rorke's Drift in the Anglo-Zulu war of 1879, an action dramatized in the 1964 film Zulu.
