    Default royal welsh fusiliers museum ,caernarfon castle

    myself and the family have been on a little holiday a bit further down the north wales coast to the market town of caernarfon the hotel we sayed at was in close proximity to the castle ,which was for those too young to remember (including myself) the location for prince charles's investiture to prince of wales back in 1969 ,also located within the castle walls was the RWF museum ,something that is close to my heart ,as my great grandfather was a member of the regiment during ww1 ,i do apologise for the picture quality it was the best i could do under the circumstances what with camera flash of the displays etc, i really hope you enjoy ,the last photo was a purchase from the gift shop ,i couldnt resist regards james Click image for larger version.

    Great stuff James, thanks for showing the pictures. The WWII 3rd battalion 53rd Welsh Div and the WWI cuff rank tunic displays are great to see.
    Regards,

    i know what you mean terry ,i did get a little over exited at the displays and took lots of piccy's , my wife and daughter had a totally different attitude ,my daughter 's over use of the word boring got on my nerves after the first 3 hours in fairness it was the first display
