Object Collection

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.

                               

Donations

If you would like to donate to our collection, please contact us. Unfortunately, we are not able to accept everything we are offered. If we already have good examples of an object or archive within the collection, we are unlikely to accept more. If you wish to donate items please email information@rlcmuseum.com.

We ask all potential donors to provide as much information as possible, including photographs of their items. If necessary, an itemised list including title, description and date (where known).

Provenance – Where did the items come from and how did you come by them?
History – What can you tell us about the original owner (if anything)?
Images – photographs or scans help us to assess condition and content.

We will endeavour to reply to you within 2 weeks of receipt. Please do not send or deliver items to us before we confirm that we are able to accept them. All donation offers must meet the criteria of the Collections Development Policy.
