Museum of the Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire Regiment Association


As museums and galleries across the UK begin to reopen, please take extra care to check their websites and social media channels for up to date information as opening times, days and dates here may not be correct.

The Collection is on two sites, and family history and other researchers are recommended to contact Nigel Lutt first at Nigel.Lutt2@virginmedia.com or if urgent on mobile 0750 4015313 for advice. The response will be prompt (within one to three days) with the exception of holidays, which will not be notified in advance, and which will result in a delay of a week or two at most. The Regimental Collection is on two sites, as follows: (1) The Regimental Gallery within Wardown Park Museum, Luton is devoted to the history of the County Regiment and its predecessors. The displays comprise uniforms, medals, militaria, pictures and silver. There is little research material on site. (2) Bedfordshire & Luton Archives & Records Service, Bedford, holds the Regimental Collection of archives and photographs (ref: X550) as well as other material for the military researcher and the family and local historian. There is no material on display, but items can be produced for consultation.
