National Army Museum and Society for Army Historical Research strengthen ties

At this year’s Chelsea History Festival, the National Army Museum (NAM) will be hosting the annual conference of the Society for Army Historical Research (SAHR) and their Templer reception on Wednesday, 22 September 2021.

SAHR is one of the most esteemed academic societies in the world dedicated to research into British military history. The National Army Museum is very pleased to further build on the mutually supportive alliance agreed between the two institutions in December 2020 by hosting these prestigious events and co-sponsoring the society’s Templer Prize – awarded annually for the best book published on a subject relevant to the society’s remit.

The National Army Museum is also very pleased to announce that this alliance has recently been strengthened by the election to the Council of SAHR of Robert Fleming, the manager of our Templer Study Centre.

The SAHR conference and reception will be a highlight of this year’s festival and will help the National Army Museum and SAHR build a strong working relationship for many years to come. A small number of places are still available for the conference and reception for NAM and SAHR members, as well as any speakers at the Chelsea History Festival. Anyone interested should contact SAHR at events@sahr.org.uk.
