Jane Austen and the Regimentals
26 June – 10 September 2017
For much of Jane Austen’s adult life, Britain was at war with France. Soldiers in their red coats were a familiar sight in southern England. Three of Jane’s brothers spent time in the army, and all her novels feature military characters. This exhibition provides the military context for characters such as Wickham, Colonel Brandon and General Tilney.
