A new exhibition at the Royal Museum of the Army and of Military History entitled 14-18, It’s Our History, explores the role of Belgium in the wider context of the First World War.
The displays fit into five subject areas: Europe on the eve of war, Belgium invaded, trench warfare, the occupation by German troops and the consequences of the conflict.
Objects on show include weapons, uniforms, trench art, letters from soldiers and the furniture from the Kaiser’s HQ in Spa. Much of the story is told through the museum’s remarkable archive of photos and film.
The exhibition will be running until 26 April 2015. For more information click here.
