(01 August 2014) Temporary Exhibition at the RGJ (Rifles) Museum, Winchester

WWI recruitment poster Title:‘A Call to Arms’
Temporary Exhibition:The Rifle Depot (later Peninsula Barracks), Winchester, was the home depot of The King's Royal Rifle Corps and The Rifle Brigade from 1858-1965. At the outbreak of the First World War the barracks became the focal point for the mobilisation of reservists and young men responding to Kitchener's call to arms. Huge numbers reporting for duty or being enlisted - up to 6,000 a day - were administered, given medical checks, clothed, equipped, paid and despatched to battalions for training and subsequent service on the frontline.
This exhibition describes the impact of the opening days of the war upon The Rifle Depot, those serving there and the effect that the transit of large numbers of young men in and out of the gates of The Rifle Depot had upon the citizens of Winchester.
Place:The Royal Green Jackets(Rifles) Museum Gallery
Time:10am -4.15pm daily until 14th September
Tickets:Normal Museum entry fee applies
