About

The history of military conflict and the soldier's life is retold through the 'war quilts' of this very rare collection curated by leading quilt historian Dr Annette Gero. Made by active soldiers and prisoners of war from pieces of disused uniforms, army blankets and other military fabrics, featured works on show include quilts dating from the Napoleonic Wars (1803-15), the Crimean War (1853-56) and World Wars I and II.
