The Postal Museum is marking an important day in world history: 100 years ago, the Treaty of Versailles was signed, and the First World War officially ended.
Find out about Blanche Horton, a Clerk to the British delegation, and uncover the links between her diary and one of the most important events of the 20th century.
To highlight this significant centenary, Museum experts are on hand to give visitors a chance to see Blanche’s diary up close, along with an original copy of the Treaty of Versailles, on loan from Royal Hospital Chelsea.
