Women soldiers tour

A member of the West Indies Auxiliary Territorial Service, 1943

Explore 100 years of women in the army. Join us for a free 30-minute tour on the first Saturday of the month at 2.30pm.

In 1917 the Women’s Army Auxiliary Corps was founded. This was the first time women could join the army outside of nursing roles. Since then there have been a number of developments for women in the army, culminating in last year's lifting of the ban on women in combat roles.

Join us for a 30-minute guided tour of the galleries exploring the theme of women in the army.
