Thin Red Line Appeal
More than 9,500 Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders have died in combat, immortalised by such episodes as the Thin Red Line at Balaklava.
Their job was to fight for their country, yours is to make sure they are never forgotten
Under threat of closure following Ministry of Defence cuts, the Museum has started a £4M redevelopment project to meet the expectation of today’s visitors, ensuring the stories of service and sacrifice of the soldiers and their families live on as part of the nation’s history, and the Museum remains a focal point for veterans, education and local communities.
‘I am delighted that The Duke of Cambridge, The Earl of Strathearn, has given his support and encouragement to this appeal, designed to safeguard the memory of a unique part of the British Army and of the nation’s proud military and cultural heritage.’
Brigadier Bruce Russell, the Chairman of the Museum Trust
