Regimental Cane Acquired by donor, Mrs E M Poyner Wall, in Darjeeling in 1914. The donor wrote the following in a letter with the cane:
“I was in Darjeeling when the King’s Own were leaving (1914) I wanted
them to have a wave from me and the best of trips. They threw their
canes to the standing public and this one that I have fell at my feet.
We heard later that so many lost their lives so I treasured it!”
Only a proportion of our collections are on display at anyone time. Certain items are on loan for display in other institutions. An appointment is required to consult any of our collections which are held in store.
