Readers may well remember the photo of the Brigade football team from the 1960s – the young David Evans, himself a former member of the local Brigade has been in contact with local chap John Genders, who’s dug out some lovely pics of the summer camps they had after the war.
John also supplied the lovely picture of the gym lesson at Walsall Wood recently.
I’d be interested to know if anyone recognises that railway station. It looks like it might be local. Maybe Codsall? Is that a GWR style cast iron footbridge?
Thanks to John and David for a wonderful donation, and a bit more of our local history preserved for the future.

These wonderful home photos show some of the Walsall Wood Boys Brigade’s summer camps in the post war years and have been very kindly offered by John Genders
He asks a simple question which we both hope that your blog readers may be able to help . When was this Walsall Wood section of the Boys Brigade started?
Can anyone help with this please?
Comments here please, or by email if you prefer to BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com. Cheers.
These photo’s are a bit too early for me although I did go to camp at Ramsgate
and on the Broads in the late 50s
The only person I recognise is Ken Whitehouse

Forward me your e-mail address please. Hope everything going or right with your grandson
