Experience

MEMORIES of Staffordshire’s soldiers through the ages are recalled, at home as well as far away: the near death sentence of service in the West Indies in the 18th Century, battles against Napoleon in Flanders and Spain, police duties in England and Ireland, Victoria’s Wars across the Globe, all the major battles of the two World Wars, keeping the peace and fighting the wars of the 21st Century. Throughout is the story of the man himself.

Memories

DISCOVER the heroic stories of the 13 Victoria Cross winners. See the pocket Bible that stopped a German bullet and the steel helmet that saved an officer’s life. Carry out research into the lives of the soldiers or aspects of the Regiment’s history in extensive archives.
