(26 June 2017) Jane Austen and the Regimentals


A temporary exhibition will be held at Winchester Military Museums from the 26th June 2017 to 10th September 2017 examining Jane Austen and military connections. For much of Jane Austen’s adult life, Britain was at war with France or America. Soldiers in their red coats were a familiar sight in southern England. Jane’s brother Henry served in the Militia, and all her novels feature military characters. The exhibition looks at life in the British Army between the 1780s and 1815, providing the context for characters such as Wickham, Captain Tilney and Colonel Brandon.
