Collection: Uniforms and equipment

Men and women serving on both sides were issued with items of uniform and equipment. People also carried personal equipment.  The Collection includes:

  • Clothing including uniforms (although that worn on campaign was often later replaced due to wear and tear)
  • Personal equipment such as first aid kits
  • Other equipment such as radios and tools
  • Weapons and the techniques and tactics for using them
  • Badges worn to identify the unit to which troops belonged
  • Medals generally awarded after the Second World War both for service and bravery
