This fine county Regiment’s museum was established on its current site within Defence Medical Service (DMS) Whittington, generally referred to locally as Whittington Barracks, in the early 1960s. The location, close to Lichfield, north of Birmingham, is the regiment’s spiritual home, having been associated with it since 1881. The museum is a place where the memories of Staffordshire’s soldiers through the ages are recalled by using regimental memorabilia, historic artefacts, uniformed mannequins, weapons collections and audio-visual presentations.
