rlc museum logo

The Royal Logistic Corps Museum cares for and displays objects covering over 200 years of our history, including those from our more recent Forming Corps:
Royal Corps of Transport, Royal Army Ordnance Corps, Royal Pioneer Corps, Army Catering Corps, Royal Engineers Postal and Courier Section.

Our collection includes uniforms, badges, medals, weapons and other equipment, as well as fine and decorative arts. We have a small collection of military vehicles, including the Rolls Royce Wraith staff car, used in Normandy during the Second World War by Field Marshal Bernard Montgomery, horse-drawn logistics vehicles and motor lorries.

Our Object collection contains over 20,000 objects. A selection of these records are accessible through our free online database. We will be adding to this database over time. Click here for the online database.
