An exhibition marking the 125th anniversary of St John Ambulance has recently opened at the Museum of the Order of St John in Clerkenwell, London.
The exhibition features the stories of 125 people – from 1887 to the present day – presented against a backdrop of worldwide events, demonstrating how St John Ambulance has been a crucial part of the fabric of society for 125 years.
Encompassing the stories of volunteers saving lives during the Second World War, providing first aid to the crowds at royal weddings, and dealing with hysteria during Beatlemania, to training and educating members of the public to be the difference between life and death, St John Ambulance has played an important role in British history, and continues to do so.
125 Voices is on show at the Museum of the Order of St John in Clerkenwell, London, until 29 September 2012. Admission is free but donations are welcome. Find out more at the museum's website
You can also read many of the stories featured in the exhibition, and find out more about the charity's history, on the St John Ambulance website
