First World War
Hear what Christmas was like during wartime from a British soldier and a female nurse of the Voluntary Aid Detachment (VAD).
Free drop-in sessions:
The National Army Museum is closed 25, 26 December 2017 and 1 January 2018.
Here we look at some of the Christmas cards sent by soldiers during the First World War, and how they helped ease the pressures of life on the front line.
Soldiers throughout the First World War found ways to maintain morale and mark the festive season while separated from their loved ones.
