The Middlesex Regiment
( Duke of Cambridge's Own )

Bruce Castle
Little Lordship Lane
Tottenham
London




In 1992 The Middlesex Regiment Museum was forced to leave its location in Bruce Castle by Harringey Borough Council which required the rooms for its own use. As a result the museum's artefacts, including three Victoria Crosses ( Edwards, Hallowes & McCready-Diarmid ), were transferred to the National Army Museum, London. The three other VCs were returned to the Princess of Wales's Royal Regiment & Queen's Regiment RHQ.
