Features & Events
As part of the Centenary Commemoration of the Great War, we at BMMT hosted a number of County wide events, and supported wide and diverse projects, between 2014 and 2018. We are now hosting events for the 80th anniversary of the Second World War, as well as celebrating other aspects of the County’s military past.

The Trust preserves uniforms, flags, weapons, equipment, documents, paintings, and photographs relating to the amateur military forces raised in Bucks since the 1500s.
Intended mainly for home defence against foreign invasion – from the Spanish Armada to Napoleon and Hitler – these citizen soldiers were just as significant for their high visibility in the local community, involving a far wider section of society in military affairs than the small regular army, which was often out of sight and out of mind serving overseas. The Trust’s collections reflect this dual military and social function.
