To mark the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War we have selected 50 items from the collections of the Liddell Hart Centre for Military Archives, the College Archive and Foyle Special Collections Library, King’s College London, each one providing a unique perspective on the conflict.

Accompanying the exhibition is a poignant re-creation of King’s College London’s original memorial to students and staff of the College who gave their lives in the war.

If you are coming from outside King’s, you are advised to contact Special Collections staff on 020 7848 1843 or visit our web pages for the latest exhibition news before you travel.

Access to the exhibition is free. On arrival at the Maughan Library, please follow the signs to the Weston Room. Please note that visitors who are not registered members of the Maughan Library are required to complete an exhibition ticket on arrival at the Library. The exhibition ticket is available to print below, as is a guide to the exhibition. Copies of the guide are also available to pick up in the Weston Room.
