The National Army Museum's Collection comprises a large number of items dating back to the origins of the British Army. The Picture Library offers a service that enables you to purchase images of items for private or commercial use. We can provide copies of most photographs, archives, works of art, badges, uniforms and equipment in the collection.
Images from the Museum galleries and study collection can be viewed using the Online Collection; a list of our complete collection can be searched using the Online Inventory. If you cannot find what you are looking for, please complete our Photograph Enquiry Form or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your enquiry will be dealt with as soon as possible, but during busy periods this may take up to 20 working days.
If you would like to research our collection and view original photographs and works of art in person, you are welcome to visit the Museum's Templer Study Centre.
Please note: Due to a large-scale storage move the Art collection (Prints, Drawings and Miniatures) is currently unavailable for viewing or reproduction purposes. The rest of the collections, including Archives and Photographs, remain unaffected at this time. Visit our Access to the Collection page for more information and updates.
Digital images or prints are available for purchase and images can also be licensed for reproduction.
Unfortunately, in some cases we will be unable to provide images. This is because some items may be unavailable for photography due to access and conservation. The Museum must also have the legal right to offer a copy. Please read the copyright section in our Terms and Conditions (84KB).
The National Army Museum's Picture Library is a member of BAPLA (The British Association of Picture Libraries and Agencies) and AHFAP (The Association for Historical and Fine Art Photography).
