The Durham Light Infantry’s collection of over 3000 medals is currently on loan to Durham University and held at Palace Green Library.
Medals are not on display, but members of the public are able to view by appointment individual medals or groups of medals from the collection in the Barker Research Library within Palace Green Library. This facility is open to anyone, once they have registered with the Library, which involves completing a form and providing proof of identity.
The Barker Research Library's opening hours and details of how to make an appointment, and further information about using Special Collections at Palace Green Library can all be found on our Libraries and site information guide.
