THE ADJUTANT GENERAL'S CORPS MUSEUM
Discover how Britain's soldiers were paid, educated, and disciplined, and the history of women in the British Army.
The Adjutant General’s Corps Museum, located in the former guardroom of Peninsula Barracks, tells the story of the modern Adjutant General’s Corps (AGC) and its antecedent Corps through artifacts and interpretative displays. The AGC was formed in 1992 from the amalgamation of the Royal Army Pay Corps (RAPC), the Royal Army Educational Corps (RAEC), the Corps of the Royal Military Police (CRMP), the Army Legal Corps (ALS), the Military Provost Staff Corps (MPSC), and the Women’s Royal Army Corps (WRAC).
Our collection encompasses objects from the AGC’s rich history and contains objects which date back to the 18th century. We have uniforms & medals, as well as many more objects with fascinating backstories. Our collection mostly consists of items of the Royal Army Pay Corps, the Royal Army Educational Corps and the Women’s Royal Army Corps; The Royal Military Police have their own museum at Southwick Park, and the Military Provost Staff Corps Association have a historic collection in Colchester.
Admission to The AGC Museum is FREE, with all donations graciously accepted.
Open 10am-4pm Tuesday to Friday, and 10am-5pm Saturday.
