My Grandfather William West better known as Bill West was involved in the Mohawks speed skating club and Birmingham Barons Ice Hockey team in the 1936/1950’s.

I was wondering if anyone knew him or had any old photos

Hi Ben, I knew your Grandfather and remember him well. He donated a trophy know as the 'West Cup' which we used to compete for. I'm sure there is a photo of him somewhere in this thread. There is an index to some photos in post #414
