Royal West African Frontier Force in the Second World War

Royal West African Frontier Force in the Second World War

During the Second World War over half-a-million African troops served with the British Army as combatants and non-combatants in campaigns in the Horn of Africa, the Middle East, Italy and Burma – the largest single movement of African men overseas since the slave trade.

This exhibition captures the experience of African soldiers in World War II.
