A Museum at War

Snapshots of Life at the Natural History Museum During World War One

Karolyn Shindler

From 1914 onwards the Natural History Museum fielded enquiries from government departments on subjects such as the development of camouflage and protecting soldiers from insect infestations. This illustrated account of its wartime role also discusses the allotments planted in the grounds, its use as a field hospital, and how deeply the staff, including those who volunteered for action, were affected.
