The pride of Brownhills unveiled this Saturday!

I’m a wee bit late with this (for which I apologise, things are a bit hectic of late) but here’s some great news from reader and longtime friend of the blog Martin, who writes concerning the Royal British Legion plaque that resurfaced following a photo article here on the blog last year.


A picture that was puzzling Bill Mayoshowed the unveiling of a plaque – readers helped in not only identifying the event, but the plaque turned up too! Image from the Bill Mayo collection.

Martin writes to tell me that the plaque in the picture is to be unveiled at it’s new home in Brownhills Library at the Parkview Centre tomorrow, Saturday 22nd November 2014 at 12 noon.

This really is a wonderful thing and please pop along if you can. I think the Library is an excellent place for this important piece of history, and look forward to having a look myself. Well done to all involved.

Hi Bob,

I’m sure that you will be interested that the Plaque in the photo that was on your blog a year or so ago has had a face lift (and I believe a very good job as been done on it) and it will be unveiled in the Brownhills Library this Saturday, November 22nd 2014 at 12 noon, Sir Richard Shepherd MP will do the honours with the Brownhills British Legion Branch.

They have done a wonderful job this year for the Poppy Appeal and have beaten by a good amount previous years totals, thanks to the generosity of the people of Brownhills.

The plaque as Mr. Bill Wright Secretary of the British Legion Brownhills Branch says ‘…is for all the people of Brownhills’, and it is hoped that local folk will go along to view it and pay their respects..

Bob on this occasion please do not mention me by name, all the credit must go to the Brownhills British Legion for all their hard work!

Kind regards,

Thanks to Martin for letting us know – sorry, should have posted this up last night, but other stuff got in the way. My apologies to martin. Please share this post as widely as possible so others get to hear.
