I have seen details of the memorial on the war museum site. Its the roll of honour I'm looking for as this, I believe, lists all those from the Gas Company who served. (John or John Thomas Johnston returned home dying in 1947)
I just hope that this memorial has not suffered the same fate
I have looked back to see where I got the reference to WW1 Birmingham Employers Roll of Honour for the City of Birmingham Gas Department. It was in relation to the brother of John Johnston, James Percy Johnstone who also worked for the Gas Department and came from Terry Carter
The Birmingham Gas Board WW1 War Memorial is now in storage. John Thomas Johnston is not on this memorial. If John survived WW1 dying in 1947 his name would not be on the memorial as he wasn't a casualty between 1914-1919. He is not listed in the Section of the memorial with the names from WW2 this may be because the names were put on before he died 1947 !!
