A new exhibition looking back at the work of the armed forces in Bury opens at The Fusilier Museum tomorrow, Saturday.

The exhibition, which coincides with Armed Forces Week, explores the connection of the regiment with Bury and its people over the last 150 years.

It will be a nostalgic look at when the regiment first moved to Bury back in March 1873, right through to when Wellington Barracks closed in 1968, and beyond.

It also looks at the regiment's involvement in the two world wars and what life was really like as a Lancashire Fusilier based at Wellington Barracks.

The exhibition will run until July 29.
