About

The Queen's Own Royal West Kent Regiment Museum is an independent museum housed within Maidstone Museum since 1960. It tells the fascinating story of this famous local regiment, recounting their exploits during the British Army’s many 18th and 19th century campaigns.

The story continues with the Royal West Kent’s service in the First World War, their dramatic and harrowing exploits during the Siege of Kohima in the Second World War and ends with their eventual amalgamation with other regiments in 1961.

The fabulous Sutlej Gun and the Museum’s four Victoria Crosses are some of the many treasures on display
