From its early origins in the Civil Wars and its defence of Britain’s shores in times of crisis, to its role as a key symbol of national identity and its support of civil authorities across the country, the Army has a long and enduring connection to the British state and society.
Join art curator Anna Lavelle on this guided gallery tour and discover a range of works that depict the Army’s home service through the centuries. Together, they highlight the integral part soldiers have played in shaping Britain’s history and nationhood.
This tour will last approximately one hour.
