Suitably located next door to the Royal Hospital, this old-fashioned museum tells the history of the British army from the perspective of the men and women who put their lives on the line for king and coun try, conveying the horrors and perceived glories of war with a refreshing lack of meddling by modern technology. The best pieces at the exhibition feature the life and times of the 'Redcoat' (the term for the British soldier from the Battle of Agincourt in 1415 to the American Revolution), the tactical battle at Waterloo between Napoleon and the Duke of Wellington and a display of the skeleton of Napoleon's horse.
