I thought the museum was poor the display of items were a lot less than when it first opened when I visited years ago too many modern school type display boards

This is a most interesting museum telling the story of the KOSB from start to finish. There are lovely little stories of particular soldiers and their exploits which are quite moving and all the medals are on display. One of 3 museums in the Barracks the KOSB museum is the one keeps you there for the longest time as there is so much to take in and understand about this wonderful regiment. If you are in Berwick then this museum is a must see.

It was interesting and at times moving. The WW1 displays and the history of Piper Laidlaw VC and the other lesser known elderly Piper who died piping the lads over the top at Loos especially poignant.

My third and not my last visit as there is much to take in.
