Details

Thanks to a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund, Staffordshire and Stoke on Trent Archive Service has opened access to one of its hidden gems, the First World War Mid-Staffordshire Military Appeal Tribunal records. These were the case papers for men appealing against their conscription into the army during the First World War.

In 1921 the Ministry of Health ordered that most Appeal Tribunal records be destroyed. However, an oversight meant that the complete Staffordshire collection survived, allowing us a unique insight into the effects of war in Staffordshire.

Also on display is a selection of trench art from the collection of James Gordon-Cumming, items made by soldiers and people during a time of conflict, using everything from shell casings, bullets, aircraft propellers and bone. It reflects on the global nature of the conflict and the creativity of the people behind the headlines.
