artefact

This picture shows the dining room of the Officers' Mess. used for both formal and routine dining by the Officers of the Battalion, it is dominated by the campaign table, which is believed to be more than 200 years old. Campaign furniture was used by officers and their staffs during military campaigns, and were most often hand crafted by master cabinet makers. They would have strong but removable fittings, making it easy to break up the tables for transportation as battles and campaigns progressed. The table is flanked by portraits and silver belonging to the Regiment's forebears.
