The museum traces the story of the Military Police with each room covering a different time period. Explore the changing face of the RMP from its origins on horseback to today’s motorcyclists, crime scene investigators and computer experts. The museum is housed within the old stable block of Southwick House. The house itself was commandeered by the Military for use during the planning for D-Day, and is where the famous D-Day wall map used in June 1944 to plot the course of Operation Overlord can still be seen.
