The adventures of mother Ross

Drop in to the Atrium at the National Army Museum on the 9th March at 11am, 1pm and 3pm to hear the incredible tale of Mother Ross, who disguised herself as a man to join the British Army.

At the end of the 17th century, Christian Davies – also known as Kit Cavanagh or Mother Ross – joined the British Army disguised as a man to try to find her lost husband.

She was a respected and well-loved soldier, serving in both the Nine Years War and the War of the Spanish Succession, until her secret was discovered.

This performance is part of Women’s History Month and will be brought to you by History’s Maid, Kate Vigurs. Free and suitable for families and children of all ages.
