Erdington Army Camp WW2
« on: February 10, 2021, 03:29:28 PM »
Currently researching my Grandfathers history. He completed part of his Army training at a camp in Erdington with Leeds Rifles in 1941 over Xmas time before deploying to India in 1942..
The only info I have of this location is 'Castle Bromwich' on his letterhead as well as previous info on another forum referring to a Spring Lane camp, but this mentions 1946 onwards?
Does anyone have any information regarding where the base may have  been or photos? From reading the letters, it suggests this may have been a transit or holding camp for soldiers preparing to deploy overseas. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
