The aim of the Combined Military Services Museum is to display artefacts from Britain’s proud military history, for the education and enjoyment of both present and future generations. The museum is fully air conditioned and the collections are kept in high quality display cases, providing a comfortable experience for visitors and a stable environment for the preservation of the artefacts..

The museum houses only genuine period items and takes great care to ensure the accuracy and detail of all its displays. There are many items of national importance on display, that cannot be seen in any other museum.

The displays show the everyday combat equipment and weaponry used by the British armed forces. These clearly show the lifestyles and burdens of the troops, who could often be sent into combat so heavily laden with equipment, as to be barely able to walk, let alone fight.

The museum is a state registered charity housing a collection of British military artefacts. A number of items on display are of national importance. A good example is the only surviving MK2 ‘Cockle’ canoe and other equipment used in the “Cockleshell Heroes” raid.
