    Hello everbody Just a few photos of the Devon & Dorset regiment museum. I have been meaning to come here for years but never got around to it until now. I was myself in the D & D's myself until I moved onto better things!!..Good thing about this museum is a I got in free lol being an ex-member. & I must say it was one of the better museums I have been to. It is quite small but has some great displays.The first few picutres are of Hilter's desk & some TR badges that were liberated 1945 from Berlin. Click image for larger version.

    Nice pics Terry, looks like a good little museum.

    I believe they are 'shorts, gay, purple'. Can't remember the NSN sorry. Very short term issue with 3 para mortar platoon.

    Hi Terry, thanks for showing these fantastic museum pieces, I must let me my best mate know about this, as he was in the "Devon and Donuts" himself until he got medically discharged as a result of jumping out from a Chinook from only 4 feet of the ground ( which I still rib him about to this day) so he will be very interested in the displays.

    Funny to see you feature in the displays too buddy, I never realised you were famous and had such nice leg's at the same time.
