The Royal Norfolk Regimental Museum (RNRM) looks after a wealth of objects relating to the Regiment. Many of these objects are on display in Norwich Castle Museum, including army uniform, kit, personal letters and diaries that reflect the daily lives of soldiers in wartime and peace. Behind the scenes a small team of staff and volunteers care for the collection. In our archive we hold a large number of First World War documents including official war diaries, battalion orders and recommendations for awards, as well as more personal material such as letters, diaries and photographs.
