British Army Uniforms: BSL Tour

Ceremonial uniforms display at the National Army Museum
Join expert guide Edward Richards for a British Sign Language (BSL) tour examining uniforms of the British Army and what they mean to those who wear them.

Uniform has long been at the heart of the British Army, creating and inspiring a sense of identity and camaraderie in those who wear it. 

From striking redcoats to khaki camouflage, uniforms have been an important way of distinguishing between rank, regiment and role. For centuries, they have helped to preserve time-honoured traditions while also adapting to new challenges.

On this guided gallery tour, Edward Richards will chart the history of British Army uniforms, highlighting some of the stories they tell about the soldiers who served in them.
