The British soldier serving in 2014, with their state of the art equipment, looks very different to the volunteer ‘Tommy' of the First World War. But are today's soldiers so different from those who served in 1914?

Followed by Q and A session.

About this location

On 19 July 2014, for the Centenary of the First World War, a transformed IWM London reopened with ground-breaking new Show more… First World War Galleries and a newly configured atrium displaying our iconic large objects. To mark the First World War Centenary we also opened Truth and Memory - the largest exhibition of British First World War art for almost 100 years.

IWM is a member of the First World War Centenary Partnership, a network of organisations committed to the delivery of the First World War Centenary Programme: a global programme of events and activities inspiring young and old to remember the impact of the First World War on people and society today.
