Military Museums information
Lonely Planet review
Of Winchester's clutch of army museums, the pick is the Royal Green Jackets Museum , which has a mini rifle-shooting range, a room of 6000 medals and an impressive blow-by-blow diorama of Napoleon's downfall, the Battle of Waterloo. The Gurkha Museum features the regiment's history, combining a jungle tableau with a history of Gurkha service to the British crown. Horsepower gallops through the combat history of the Royal Hussars, from the Charge of the Light Brigade to armour-clad vehicles.
