Light Infantry Archives

Bodmin Keep Archive

Our LI archive photographs

In addition to our Light Infantry museum collection, we are also home to the Light Infantry archive of photographs which record many aspects of the Regiment’s story.  This image shows the boxes of photos that are housed in our archive store.  We have thousands of photographs from each of the Battalions which are gradually being catalogued and recorded.  Look out for our regular LI photograph posts on Facebook and help us to identify people and places.
If you have an enquiry that you think we may be able to help with then please get in touch by emailing

Li Archive Documents

The LI document archive is held at the museum and includes back copies of the regimental journal.  Access to some parts of the document archive is under the control of the Light Infantry Committee.  If you have a research enquiry please contact us in the first instance on
