Event description

Description

If Britain went to war today, would you join the fight? What about if you didn’t have a choice?

Duty, adventure, patriotism, camaraderie, career development, food, money; there are many reasons soldiers have joined the Army. 100 years ago that choice was taken away as the British Government introduced conscription for the first time.

As part of Parliament Week 2016, the National Army Museum is co-hosting a panel discussion with the Houses of Parliament, bringing together MPs and historians to debate the question: does your country have the right to make you fight?

The debate will begin at 7pm, however please arrive by 6:30pm to get through security.
