The Royal Monmouthshire Royal Engineers (Militia)
The Regimental Archive
The Museum holds about fifty ledgers, books and documents which form the Archive of the Royal Monmouthshire Royal Engineers (Militia).
There are Enlistment Registers, Muster Rolls, Monthly Returns, Regimental Orders, and Adjutant's Letters.
Many records have been lost over the years.
