The Royal Green Jackets Museum digital Book

The Royal Green Jackets Museum digital Book

The Rifles Museum in Winchester was opened in 1989 and is one of the best regimental museums in the UK.

The digital book records the history of The Royal Green Jackets and their predecessor regiments, covering two and a half centuries:
The 43rd (Monmouth Light Infantry) Regiment of Foot
52nd (Oxford Light Infantry) Regiment of Foot
60th (Royal American) Regiment of Foot
95th (Rifles) Regiment of Foot.

This digital book lists the name of each soldier serving in these regiments through the Napoleonic Wars. These include the Peninsular War, the Walcheren campaign in The Netherlands and culminated in the Battle of Waterloo.

The Royal Green Jackets Museum digital book also helps explain the formation of the modern countries of Europe.
How the many states and principalities including their leaders were affected by the military campaigns of Napoleon with his final defeat by the allied forces of Wellington and Prussia, triggering the formation of a unified Germany.

Client statement:
The purpose for the use of the e-book is somewhat different to the usual. We wanted to have a database, which could be accessed by visitors in the museum, showing the images and details of the medals awarded to members of our antecedent regiments for the Peninsular War and the Waterloo Campaign.
We are very happy with the result, as well as the work and support that went in to its creation.
