This year our Act of Remembrance took place on:
Saturday 11th November 2017 in Moseley Schools Spring Hill College foyer.
Each year, on the Saturday nearest to the 11th November, former students join with current students in the foyer of Moseley School’s Spring Hill College, to remember those who fought in conflict throughout the world.
Wreaths are laid before the names of the 96 Moseleians who lost their lives in the Second World War and after The Last Post and two minutes silence, visitors are invited to browse through folders, collated by the Archive Task Force, which give an account of many of those 96 men.
It is worth noting that during the First World War Spring Hill Collage was used as a barracks and training ground for The 3rd Birmingham Pals Battalion (later, 16th battalion, Royal Warwickshire Regiment) and in 2014 a number of trees were planted to commemorate the Birmingham Pals.
This event is open to association members and non members.
A search is underway for a World War One memorial board which we understand was originally at College Road School but re-sited when the school moved to become Moseley Modern in 1955. The memorial contained a roll of honour for College Road Council School 1914 –18. The only surviving evidence we have is this photograph.
