Housed within the National Army Museum are some of Britains finest military treasures. Included in the exhibits is the ever popular 400sq ft model of the battle of Waterloo, complete with over 70,000 model soldiers. This is a great opportunity to gain a unique view into the lives of British soldiers, encompassing the first men to join Henry VII's Yeomen of the guard to Privates and Field Marshalls, women in the army, from Tudor times to present day. See what it was like for soldiers to carry out their duty in the Western front trenches and learn about how soldiers have survived in jungles, snows, mountains and deserts of the world.
