Home Guard at Austin, Longbridge

I have recently pulled together some information about the Austin Works Home Guard unit and put it online here: https://www.staffshomeguard.co.uk/DotherReminiscences117Longbridge.htm

If anyone can add to the story I should be delighted to hear it. And, especially, if further members of that unit are known, I should like to include their names so that memory of their service is perpetuated, if that is the family's wish.

Thanks for your kind words, Alan. We all have to accept that one's own area of interest is often everyone else's big yawn!

Since starting this thread my Longbridge page has been updated and now contains more images and names of individuals. Worth a look for anyone who has family connections with Longbridge relating to the war years. https://www.staffshomeguard.co.uk/DotherReminiscences117Longbridge.htm

Here are a couple of the images - Longbridge Lane and New Road, Rubery.
