American Associates

The American Associates aim to raise awareness and support for the National Army Museum.

Supporters of the National Army Museum created the American Associates of the National Army Museum UK, Inc, a US non-profit organisation, to back the Museum and its mission.

The Capture of Louisbourg, 1745

‘The American Armed Forces have had a long relationship with the British Army. Starting as enemies they have become staunch allies, and there can be no better way to celebrate this friendship and to learn about its long history than to join the American Associates of the National Army Museum.’

Bernard Cornwell OBE, President of the American Associates
