On display within Charge! The Story of England's Northern Cavalry

The 11th November 2018 marks the 100th anniversary of the signing of the Armistice and the end of the First World War.

This exhibition looks at the last 100 days of the war for the Northumberland Hussars and the regiments that later formed The Light Dragoons.

Using a mixture of graphics, quotes, images and objects it also explores the introduction of Armistice Day as an annual commemoration, the importance of remembrance today and the introduction of the Royal British Legion and the Poppy Appeal.

The exhibition features interviews with serving soldiers and veterans who explain the importance of Remembrance to them.

The exhibition will run until the end of January.
