The British in India museum was opened in Colne in 1972, moving to Nelson in 2006. The founder, Mr Henry Nelson, sadly died last year but we are happy to hear that the museum will remain open.
On show are:
- swords and kurkis
- commemorative boxs and plates
- models carved in ivory
- photographs and paintings
- Indian army cap badges and buttons
- a tiger skin shot in the Saugor area in 1915
- clothes worn by E.M. Forster when he was secretary to H.H. The Maharajah of Dewas State Senior.
- uniform of F.M. Sir Claude Auchinleck.
- The last flag to be lowered at the Residency, Lucknow in 1947.
- Many other items too numerous to mention.
