The Britain at War editorial team had a visit to the excellent National Army Museum in London yesterday. In fact, we spent most of the day at the museum, as there was much to see! The museum is located in Chelsea, just a 10-minute walk from Sloane Square tube station.
It’s free to enter, and is highly recommended! For more details, see: www.nam.ac.uk
