Yes Charliewag, too easy wasn't it. I don't want to start with difficult ones and put everybody off before we get into the game. Still well done for spotting it, did you go to Birmingham Uni?

No carried out a lot of roofing work over the past 30 years, know it like the back of my hand.

No pudding it was not there, I will tell you that you would have to be at least 71 years of age to have seen this clock and I don't suppose you would remember it unless you were older.

You probably read the piece I did about the late great Percy Shurmer MP He was the one who insisted it be repaired (it hadn't worked for years) and moved to the Bull Ring Market Hall. It was moved in 1936 and installed above the market office. Sadly 4 years later in 1940 it was bombed out of existence.
