Franz Ferdinand and the mystery of the silk vest

Join us to unravel the mysterious case of the silk bullet-proof vest.

Speaker: Lisa Traynor – First World War Project Researcher, Royal Armouries

On 28 June 1914, Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife were assassinated in Sarajevo, and within months the world is plunged into war.
