About us

Behind the Lines reveals how people in all walks of life, from camp followers to factory workers, helped support the military in times of conflict.

The display shares stories of the often little documented units who have served with and supported the British Army throughout the centuries.

Assistant curator Hannah Rogers said: “Behind the Lines is the latest in a series of exhibitions at York Army Museum aiming to widen and increase awareness of the British Army and what it does beyond war and conflict, and how this relates to the lives of the general public.
