18 incredible photos of Birmingham during World War II
Here are some incredible photos of Birmingham during World War 2
Birmingham will join the rest of the UK and fall silent next Sunday (13 November), as the city remembers the fallen at its Remembrance Day parade and service.
Remembrance Day marks the day World War One came to an end, at 11am on the 11th day of the 11th month, in 1918. The day is held in the United Kingdom as a day to commemorate the contribution of British and Commonwealth military and civilian servicemen and women in the two World Wars and later conflicts.
A two-minute silence will be held across the country and parades will take place to remember the people who have died in wars around the world.
Birmingham’s annual Remembrance Day Service will once again take place on Colmore Row, opposite St Philip’s Cathedral, on Sunday 13 November, attended by military veterans and armed forces representatives.
The day provides an opportunity for us to pay tribute to those who have died in wars. With that in mind, let’s take a look at some incredible photos of Birmingham during World War 2.
