About the memorial: Currently stored in pieces at Birmingham Museum Trust Collection Centre, 25 Dollman Street, Duddeston B7 4RQ.The memorial was in the grounds of the Hollyfields Sports Centre, but this was previously the site of the British Gas Social Club. Was originally in the Gas Hall which became Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery, then moved to a landing, then moved into storage before going to the Social Club grounds. The metal sculpture of victory was stolen in 1999. The memorial was unveiled by Mr G R Warr on the 19th November 1921 and dedicated by the Lord Bishop of Birmingham (The Rt Rev Henry Russell Wakefield C.B.E D.D.) at the City of Birmingham Gas Department Head Office Birmingham. During the erection of the memorial in 1921 a cavity was formed into which was placed a complete roll of the 1239 men from the department who joined H M Forces.
