Soldiers of Oxfordshire Museum
The Soldiers of Oxfordshire Museum is not a Regimental Museum more a Military Museum related to the connection between the Military of Oxfordshire and the County in which they are based, hence our strap line of "Conflict and County".
At the heart of the Museum will always be the rich histories of the two County Regiments; The Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire Light Infantry and the Queens Own Oxfordshire Hussars in which Churchill served and was associated with for 64 years. Apart from the two county regiments, Oxfordshire has been and still is heavily populated by Military and has been for centuries. It currently hosts a Battalion of The Rifles (the successors to the Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire Light Infantry) in Abingdon, a squadron of the Queens Own Oxfordshire Hussars in Banbury, two major RAF bases in Brize Norton and Benson together with the major logistic base and the Defence Explosives Munitions School at Bicester as well as other logistic regiments within the County.
Our aim is to tell the stories of these soldiers, their families, the county towns in which they lived or came from and the consequences of conflict on them and the County. We house a significant and important part of the social and development history of the County and portray this in our static and special exhibitions in the Museum. We demonstrate the courage, tenacity, comradeship and fellowship of the Military, their families, the towns in which they lived or were born and the close links with the population of this county of Oxfordshire. Together they exemplify the concept of mutual support in “Conflict and County”.
