The Cumbria Museum of Military Life is a museum located in Carlisle, in the United Kingdom. The museum tells the 300-year story of Cumbria’s County Infantry Regiment: the 34th Regiment of Foot, the 55th Regiment of Foot, Border Regiment, King’s Own Royal Border Regiment and the current serving Regiment – The Duke of Lancaster’s. On display are a huge variety of items including weapons, uniforms, and medals. In 2014 the Museum was expanded and new interactive displays and dioramas were added such as a First World War trench environment.
