A new exhibition which celebrates the Midlands Heavy and Light cavalry regiments, from the Cold War to the present day, will open in February at Erewash Museum.

The exhibition will feature uniforms, artefacts and artists’ impressions of the 9th/12th regiments and other Lancers.

The exhibition was created from the personal collection of Tony Wilson, of Ilkeston, an army veteran who served with the 9th/12th Royal Lancers. It will also showcase original works and prints by war artist Mick Graham Art.

These regiments have a fascinating and colourful modern history. Discover more about the Royal Lancers, the ‘Queen Elizabeths’ Own,’ and the regiments that formed them. 

The exhibition will run from Saturday 1 February until Saturday 9 May 2020.
