Birmingham's Home Guard Street Fighting School known as "GHQ Town Fighting Wing" was based at
130 Bristol Street
in a 19th c. church known as The Old Meeting Church on the corner of Ashley Street.
The practical training was carried out in a derelict area of the city, adjacent to the Bristol Street premises, apparently in the area of Wrentham, Essex, Gooch and Kent Streets. Further information about the School is available
elsewhere within this website.
As part of the training a play was written describing an imaginary operation in the vicinity, in Ashley and Russell Streets. This is the script.
