The National Army Museum is inviting InChelsea readers to enjoy 50% off adult tickets to their special exhibition this January: a collection of over 40 First World War paintings by the renowned equine artist, Sir Alfred Munnings, displayed together for the first time in a century.

Often painting less than a mile from the front line, and in full view of the enemy, he shows war horses on the march, at the charge, at work and at rest. These canvases demonstrate both the important role of mounted troops on the Western Front and the vital work behind the lines that sustained the war effort.
