Mid-Staffordshire Military Service Tribunal (Appeals), 1916 - 1918
An exciting collection of documents has recently been uncovered. Whilst cataloguing the records of Staffordshire County Council we discovered the papers of the Mid-Staffordshire Military Appeal Tribunal. Records of most Appeal Tribunals for counties in the United Kingdom, created during World War One, were destroyed after the war. The scarcity of such records nation-wide makes the survival of the Staffordshire collection particularly significant.
These records are an amazing source of information about how this County coped with the call up of young men for Military Service during the First World War. Incidentally, the records provide a snap-shot of Staffordshire agriculture, businesses and communities, as well as biographical details concerning the individuals involved.
Please note that 48 hours' notice is required for production of these records for consultation in the reading room at Staffordshire Record Office.
