The National Army Museum will be closed to the public from 18 March until further notice following the latest government guidance in response to the Covid-19 outbreak.
As soldiers are mobilised to help public services deal with the coronavirus pandemic, we explore how Britain has often had to rely upon the Army at times of emergency.
Eighty years ago, with the nation’s very existence under threat, holding firm, working together and keeping calm helped the people of Britain prevail.
The WRAC was the first permanent, peacetime unit for women. When it disbanded in 1992, women's full integration into the Army began.
The ATS was formed as an emergency measure in the lead-up the Second World War. It was the first women’s unit to be granted full military status.
Founded as the Women’s Army Auxiliary Corps, this unit freed up more men to fight in the First World War. It was the first time women had served in the Army other than as nurses.
Search the enlistment books of the five British Army regiments disbanded on the establishment of the Irish Free State in 1922.
Discover the national and global impact of the First World War and hear the stories of men and women whose lives were affected by the conflict.
A collection of letters and photographs reveals the story of 19-year-old Second Lieutenant Noel Evans and the tragic timing of his death on the morning the Armistice was signed.
After the Armistice in November 1918, millions of soldiers hoped to be home soon. But demobilisation was a huge task. How best to mark the victory and commemorate the fallen was also hotly debated.
