The Western Front Association
(Birmingham Branch)


To the Web site of the Birmingham Branch of the W.F.A.. Here you will find details of the Branch it's meetings and it's members interests.

Naturally, it reflects the area and community in which we live, and the men the families and the regiments of all those who served  and the many who never came back.

Some of the work is done by members with a lifetimes interest, some is spontaneous, sparked by the distant childhood memory of an almost forgotten loved one or the finding of an old letter or medal ; others are given by professional or semi-professional researchers .

Whatever the motivation, they are rich in detail and personal anecdotes.

These we would like to share with you.

This Branch is affiliated to the  National "WESTERN FRONT ASSOCIATION" which was inaugurated in 1980.
This association was formed with the aim of furthering interest in the period 1914-1918 and to perpetuate the memory, courage and comradeship of those of both sides, who served their countries during the
Great War
It does not seek to glorify war and is it a re-enactment society and it is not commercially motivated.
It is entirely non-political and welcomes all  of a like mind as members.

All meetings take place at the Bedford Suite, Sutton Coldfield Town Hall, Kings Edward Square, Sutton Coldfield B73 6AB  usually on the third Saturday afternoon of each month.
The meetings begin at 2.00 pm with doors open from 1.30 pm. and are usually concluded  by 5.00 pm.
Refreshments are served during the interval and adjacent parking is free of charge.
There is an excellent Cross City Rail link embracing Lichfield, Birmingham, Redditch and calling at Sutton Coldfield.
Non-members are made most welcome and we encourage their attendance. A small voluntary donation towards the expenses of the speaker and the venue would be appreciated.
