World War 2 Project

The Moseley Society History Group has started a new research project on local men in World War Two. It is based on the memorial in St. Mary’s Church. We aim to produce a booklet and deliver a talk in March 2022. There are 21 names on the memorial. We are concentrating on these 11 men to begin with. We hope to do the same on the remaining 10 named. We would love to hear from any surviving relatives of these men, particularly if these have any information relating to their war service.
