In the 11th century, armoured crusaders helped the holy brothers in Jerusalem care for the sick and injured. This partnership later evolved into the Order of St John. In 1877, uniformed brigades taught and provided first aid to the public in England. St John Ambulance was hence born. As a registered not-for-profit volunteer-based charity, St John SA has been supporting the wellbeing of South Australians since 1885. They do so through the delivery of first-aid patient care as well as first-aid resources, training, kits and equipment.



In 1988, the St John Historical Society of South Australia was established to capture and document the valuable historical heritage of the organisation. Artefacts were tirelessly collected and preserved in the St John SA Museum. These include ambulances from the 1970s, past uniforms, first aid and home nursing equipment, and more. Knowledgeable volunteers are also on hand to give an explanation of things and answer any questions you may have. The museum can be found at 7 Arundel Road in Brighton. It is open every Sunday from 1:30pm to 3:30pm during South Australia's History Festival. Entry is free. For more information, including other visiting hours, please visit their website www.stjohnsa.com.au .
