Edwardian Britain before the outbreak of the First World War is viewed as a land of hierarchy and tradition. But by 1919 there were tanks on the streets of British cities, police strikes and mutiny in the army.

This Museum Talk explores the impact of the war, and explains why Britain seemed to be teetering on the brink of revolution in 1919. Our special exhibition Hostile Environment: The British in Russia will explore more of the themes introduced in the talk.
