The Inniskillings Museum
Enniskillen is the only town in Great Britain and Ireland to confer its name on two regiments.
They are Cavalry and Infantry.
They are Inniskillings.
And Enniskillen Castle is where their story began more than 330 years ago.

**Service records for soldiers who served after 1922 are held by the Ministry of Defence. If you wish to find out more about a soldier who served after 1922, please visit here: Veterans UK website.
