A new exhibition celebrating the London Regiment has been unveiled at the Guards Museum.

The new collection aims to provide a walk through history, charting the regiment's heritage from 1908 to the present day.

It is the only reserve regiment of the Guards Division, and the 'Londons' have fought in operations all over the world.

It comprises highly trained infantry soldiers from across London, who support the five regiments of the Foot Guards.

Greater London Reserve Forces Cadets Association Historian, and Archivist Major (Ret'd) Derrick Harwood said: "Although the display is primarily about the London Regiment, it also endeavours to tell the story of the Army Reserve from the inception of the Territorial Force in 1908 to the Army Reserve of the present day."

The new display was formally unveiled by Major General Ben Bathurst, who is General Officer Commanding London District, and Brigadier Marc Overton, Regimental Lieutenant Colonel of The London Regiment and Greater London Reserve Forces Cadets Association Chairman.
