An exhibition focusing on Staffordshire soldiers of the First World War has opened in Lichfield.
The North Staffordshire and South Staffordshire regiments were involved in many theatres of the First World War and fought at some of its most lethal battles.
Figures from the First Battle of Ypres in 1914 show that 93 per cent of those serving with the 1st Battalion of the South Staffordshire Regiment were killed or wounded.
Janice Murray, director general at the NAM, said: ‘We were delighted to work with the Staffordshire Regiment Museum to create this unique exhibition, and are looking forward to opening its doors to visitors.’
Staffordshire Goes to War runs until 18 January 2015.
