A new exhibition and a public appeal


General Sir George Wentworth Alexander Higginson

Find out how this little boy grew up to be a General, a Knight of the Bath, a Knight Grand Cross of the Victorian Order, won honours from France and Turkey, founded a Boy’s Home, lived to over a hundred, became known as ‘Father of the Guards’ , knew five British monarchs and had a park in Marlow named after him!

Urgent Appeal

Please contribute to our appeal at


The Museum’s air con/heating unit has broken and cannot be repaired. We need to raise £5,000 to replace it at once to preserve our collection. Temperature and humidity control is vital to maintain the artefacts. Our annual income is only about £8,000, so this is a huge thing for us. Please help us if you can.  Thank you.
