First World War - War in the Air

First World War Galleries: Centenary Campaign

We need your help!

Please support our First World War Galleries Centenary Campaign.

Each and every one of us has a connection to the First World War – no individual was left untouched by the scale of that conflict.

IWM was founded during the First World War to ensure that the many stories of the men and the women who lived and served on the fighting and home front would never be forgotten.

In 2014, to mark the centenary of the outbreak of the war, we are transforming our museum and we urgently need your help.

Any gift you give will make a vital contribution.

  • £5 could preserve the inks on a letter written during the First World War
  • £10 could conserve a First World War trench sign
  • £25 could enable our conservators to prepare a set of medals for display

To give greater support you may wish to become an IWM Patron and enjoy special access to our collections.
