The Adjutant General’s Corps Museum, located in the former guardroom of Peninsula Barracks, tells the story of the modern Adjutant General’s Corps (AGC) and the antecedent Corps through artefacts and interpretative displays.
The AGC is relatively young, created in 1992 from the amalgamation of:
- the Royal Army Pay Corps
- the Royal Army Educational Corps
- the Corps of the Royal Military Police
- the Army Legal Corps
- the Military Provost Staff Corps and
- the Women’s Royal Army Corps
Our collection encompasses objects from the AGC’s rich history and contains objects which date back to the 18th century. We have uniforms & medals, as well as many more objects with fascinating backstories.
Our main collection consists of items of the Royal Army Pay Corps, the Royal Army Educational Corps and the Women’s Royal Army Corps; The Royal Military Police have their own museum at Southwick Park, and the Military Provost Staff Corps Association have a historic collection in Colchester.
