Instead of returning home following the 1918 armistice, thousands of British soldiers, including 1300 Green Howards, were deployed to northern Russia. They were part of a multi-national force tasked with turning the tide of revolution. We tell the little known story of how Britain played its part in the Russian Civil War, using personal archives from the museum’s collection to explore the complex positioning of ‘red’ versus ‘white’ at a time of enormous global social and political upheaval in the aftermath of the First World War.
