Museum of the Order of St John Rachel Job, collections and engagement assistant

The Museum will soon be unveiling a new display about St John Ambulance Badgers and Cadets to mark the centenary of the establishment of the Cadets in 2022. As part of this we will be including current and former Cadets’ memories of providing event cover, and that’s where you come in.

If you would like to take part, please submit a photograph of yourself as a Cadet (in uniform), and between 200 and 300 words about your memories of providing event cover as a Cadet, as well as a completed consent formYou could write about a particularly memorable duty, or you could write about somewhere you regularly went (or still go) to provide event cover. Where were you? What did you do? Who did you meet?

Please don’t identify other individuals in your text, and please note that your image and account may be edited down, without changing the meaning. Please also be aware that we may not be able to include all submissions in the St John Young People display.

Please send your photograph, written piece and completed consent form to collections and engagement assistant, Rachel Job, at, or email with any queries.
