From this week visitors to our War Horse: Fact & Fiction exhibition will be able to see a new addition on display – a unique cubist drawing from celebrated equine artist Sally Hyslop.
After 20 years, Michael Morpurgo reveals the hidden truth behind the opening lines of his hugely popular novel War Horse, in a warm and humorous interview with Clare Balding.
Whether you’re a fan of the book, play or film; if you saw the exhibition or if you have a personal connection to the subject matter, we’d love to hear what you have to say.
Only one day to go now before the War Horse: Fact & Fiction exhibition opens to the public and we’re all very excited here at the National Army Museum.
Last night the National Army Museum rolled out the red carpet to celebrate the new War Horse: Fact & Fiction exhibition. With only three days to go until the official public launch date we invited our closest friends and supporters to have an early peek at what’s in store.
Many of the animals who have served with the Army have passed through history unnamed and under-appreciated by their troops. However, there is one plucky mule who was so loved by his regiment that they brought him home and even gave him medals for his service.
Scottish artist Laura Antebi drove all the way from Ayrshire to deliver a very special piece for our exhibition. Laura won the commission to create a unique horse sculpture for the Museum back in June 2011.
Equine artist Ali Bannister popped into the Museum last week to drop off some very special objects for the War Horse: Fact & Fiction exhibition. Ali has just finished work on the set of Steven Spielberg’s forthcoming blockbuster War Horse.
One of the exhibition’s most intriguing pieces has been installed this afternoon – the damaged coatee worn by Sergeant Frederick Peake during the Charge of the Light Brigade.
