Today the family and I took a trip across the Thames into deepest darkest Kent (Maidstone to be precise) to make the most of the Bank Holiday. Our target was the Maidstone Museum and, for me at least, the Regimental Museum housed within its walls. The Regimental Museum of the Queens Own is small but crammed with a fascinating collection of memorabilia and medals that showcase the Regiments illustrious history.
Pride of place goes to the Sutlej Gun and four Victoria Crosses but the museum also holds a vast collection of other medals and items of keen interest.
Both Maidstone Museum and the Regimental Museum within it are Free admission and well worth a visit if you have a couple of hours to spare.
