The National Army Museum has begun publishing online a snapshot of the diverse response of the general public to Britain’s ongoing involvement in the Afghanistan conflict.

Nearly 1000 visitor comments have been collected by the museum in response to its exhibition, Helmand: The Soldiers’ Story, which is open at the Chelsea-based venue until December 2008.

Now the museum is publishing the comments, left by visitors on its comments wall, on its website and also as part of a London Underground advertising campaign launched on July 28 2008 for the closing months of the highly popular exhibition.

"The exhibition has helped to provoke thought about the conflict, and has generated a quite intense response," said Jo Woolley, exhibition team leader and head of marketing at the museum. "We heard from children, parents, pensioners, veterans, soldiers, their families and friends, and international visitors.”
