The National Army Museum, London, has created a gallery of images and installations concerning Commonwealth civilian armies during the World Wars.

The National Army mission statement on its website states it aims to: "gather, maintain and make known the story of the British Army and its role and impact in world history. To provide a museum experience that meets the widest range of public need and connects the British public with its Army."

The gallery "explores the role of the British Commonwealth's civilian armies and their defence of democracy during the First and Second World Wars, the era of 'Total War'."

"World War One (1914-18) installations include infantry soldiers from 1915 and 1917, a machine gun team, a trench periscope and reconstructed dug-out from 1917 and a full-scale replica of a tank".

The gallery also includes "interactive audio-visual displays and archive film footage".
