Manchester Art Gallery
Lord Egerton of Tatton, who wrote in 1896, the definitive reference work on Indian Arms and armour, bequeathed his enormous collection to his daughter who later passed it on to the museum.
The most interesting parts are in storage, including many Sikh weapons, chakkars, and matchlocks. In addition to a Sikh shield on display in the Gallery of Craft & Design the Museum holds the gauntlets of Maharajah Kharak Singh as well as armour believed to be that of Maharajah Ranjit Singh.
