Military Gallery

The Military Gallery pays homage to the history of the Garrison and showcases the historical development of the armed forces in Barbados from the 17th century until the end of World War II. The regalia, armaments, medals and photographs displayed in this Gallery visually represent significant military milestones in the island’s history from militias used in the 17th century to the development of the Barbados Defence Force in the 1970s. It also traces the development of the second oldest regiment in the Commonwealth; Barbados’ development in the 18th and 19th centuries into the Headquarters of the British Army and Navy for the entire Caribbean; and the names of those who lost their lives in both World Wars. It also highlights the West India Regiment and the Black lives that were lost in the wars in an attempt to diversify the whitewashing of history related to World War I and II.
