From Petticoats to the Front Line
A new display in Charge! highlighting the history of women in The Light Dragoons
Until 24 February 2023 (historic exhibition)
Today the proportion of women serving in the Army today has never been higher, with women now being able to serve in all combat roles.
However, this hasn’t always been the case. This exhibition tells that story, from the first woman to join the regiment in the 1780s to the more recent recruits of The Light Dragoons.
