The Heat of Battle focuses on the story of the Royal Welsh Fusiliers on campaign in Egypt and Palestine during the First World War. The exhibition is based around the reserve collections of the Royal Welch Fusiliers regimental museum including original artwork by Richard Lunt Roberts (6RWF) and the photographs and souvenirs brought back by serving members of the regiment. Highlights of the exhibition will be Frank Brangwyn\’s painting \’Entry of the Welsh Troops into Jerusalem\’ and gallantry medals awarded to members of the regiment, most of which have never been on public display before.
