Hi All,

I'm currently trying to locate the old HMS Stirling Training Ship which supposedly stood in a Flaxley or Platsley Road in Stechford, Birmingham.

The building concerned may well have been demolished some while ago, but my lack of knowledge on the Stechford area is only overshadowed by my knowledge on the history of the town!!!

Any help / recollections concerning this site would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Nick

Glad to see you got a good response from BH for details about HMS Stirling

Langstraat.. Yes it was a good responce dont you think, but your comment was/is a little unfair, the only people who would know would be the people who lived in Stechford, I've never heard of it, only thing is to wait, and, and maybe some one will remember.? it does happen O0

There's a very a good image of the Cadet group which still uses the Stirling name:

Have you contacted the present HMS Stirling I'm sure they would have an Archive:

I do have a few irons in the fire regarding this matter and I must admit that I'm not doing badly with regards to returns overall.....

Thanks Langstraat - I will get onto them straight away!!
