It would depend on the trust deed.

The trustees are under a duty to act in the best
interest of the beneficiaries who are probably the wider public or the regiment.
They may do this if for example they have too many articles or they need to
raise money for refurbishment or the purchase of different articles.

They may or may not be entitled to do this
depending on the construction of the deed.

If you let me have the full background, I can
probably expand my answer.
