The Great War was a global conflict that lasted from 1914 to 1918 and resulted in the deaths of more than 60 million people. The Military History section of the British Museum has some of this memorabilia.
The memorabilia, ranging from medals, badges and photographs to uniforms, documents and paintings are on display in a special exhibition entitled “The Great War at Home”.
This exhibition of memorabilia from the Great War was organized by the Imperial War Museum London in order to commemorate its 100th anniversary. According to their site, “The exhibition explores 60 years of British life in France and Belgium during the First World War. It is divided into six panels describing different aspects of life in French and Belgian for civilians, soldiers, troops and the army.”
Sections would be divided into categories like: home front, military affairs, social issues, war deaths and other subjects. According to IWM: “Through objects on display we explore what life was like for civilians who lived under one of the worst peacetime crises known to man. Those who served in uniform will be treated with interest as well”.
It will be a long time before we can say that humans have no idea of the Great War. It is still a part of our collective memory and so we should not forget it or erase it from our minds. However, there is not much information available regarding the museum’s collection. It will be interesting to see what kinds of memorabilia they collect during the exhibition, because it could provide some insight into how people used to remember the Great War and what forms of memorabilia were used for that purpose.
The biggest exhibition of memorabilia from the Great War was held in London at the Imperial War Museum in 2013. It lasted for two weeks and had more than 420,000 visitors. The exhibition attracted interest from all over the world, with many people bringing their family members to see the amazing collection of mementos from this terrible war.
The exhibition of memorabilia from the Great War at the Imperial War Museum London is an experience that anyone who grew up around the Great War should not miss.
Those who took part in this global conflict will always have a special place in our heart, and we are proud to present some of these incredible items for you to enjoy.
The Great War was a defining and defining moment in the history of the 20th century. It caused a huge number of deaths, affected economies, and set the scene for three world wars. Today we are not just talking about WWI & II but also about WW3.
The Great War is still talked about today despite all these years have passed. The commemorations have been going on since 1923 when the Armistice was signed at Brest-Litovsk where most of those killed in WW1 were taken prisoner or executed by their own troops in Europe and Asia. With this much time has passed, it is only natural that new generations should get into the conversation with their questions and queries on the horrors committed during WW1.
