A permanent physical museum to hold the collection of objects and archival material is longer feasible. However modern technology does allow the Trust to fulfill its remit in other ways.To this end a series of programmes and projects to digitize the collection before disposal and preserve the archive are underway. Collections: The museum collection includes the uniforms and other military artefacts covering 100 years of the history of a kilted Scottish volunteer infantry regiment established in Liverpool.The collection of photographs and other documentary information is extensive.
