Moseley was defended by the 24th Warwickshire (Birmingham) Battalion of the Home Guard, under the command of Lt.-Col. E.H. Robinson, D.S.O., M.C., late of the King's Shropshire Light Infantry.
A superb photograph survives of No. 4 Platoon of that Battalion's "E" Company, taken at an unidentified rural location. Amongst the Platoon's 45 members can be seen Sgt. Ernest James Brown, usually known as Jimmy (right - and second right from the sign in the group image). Sgt. Brown was the uncle of Mr. Dave Hancox who saved this image from destruction and has generously allowed its publication here.
