8/13 Victorian Mounted Rifles Regimental Collection (1986)

First established at Buna Barracks Victoria Street Albury. When this depot closed in 2000, the Collection moved with the regiment to Building 105 North Bandiana 5km east of Wodonga. The Collection was relaid in a purpose built area within the refurbished depot. Regrettably in 2009, Building 105 was found to be structurally unsound and the regiment moved to Latchford Barracks at Bonegilla 15km east of Wodonga. The Collection was packed and placed into temporary storage at Building 129 North Bandiana pending a suitable museum space eithe on-base or off-base coming available. With nothing available in the area, space was allocated at Simpson Barracks Watsonia in 2017 where a new museum has been developed.
