The Military Knights of Windsor

The Military Knights of Windsor proudly claim to be the oldest military establishment in the Army List. Formed in 1348 by King Edward III shortly after the Battle of Crecy, the foundation consisted of Knights who, having taken their private armies to France to fight for the King, had been taken prisoner by the French who demanded heavy ransoms in return for their release. In most cases, these unfortunate warriors were reduced to absolute poverty and were forced to beg for alms.

Known as the Alms Knights and nicknamed “Poor Knights” they formed part of the College of St George that was created to support the establishment of the Most Noble Order of the Garter. 26 “Poor Knights", mirroring the 26 Garter Knights were given accommodation in the Lower Ward of Windsor Castle in exchange for daily prayer in St George’s Chapel for, and on behalf of, the Garter Knights.

The Imperial War Museums (IWM) and King’s Centre for Military Health Research (KCMHR) at King’s College London are seeking to interview current and past service personnel about their deployments to Afghanistan between 2001-2021.

This is an opportunity to informally share your experiences relating to your deployment(s) to Afghanistan and your thoughts on the subsequent withdrawal of troops in August 2021. IWM will preserve your oral history interview permanently for future generations as part of its historic collection.  KCMHR will analyse your oral history to research around the impact of deployment(s) to Afghanistan to help shape future support provided to those who deployed. 

If you have served in Afghanistan between 2001-2021 and would like to find out more about the project, please get in contact with IWM’s Contemporary Conflict team: voices@iwm.org.uk

Afternote from the National Secretary:

Any Volunteers to this Project who wish to share their experiences in Afghanistan should also be mindful of any areas that may be subject to the Official Secrets Act (OSA).
