Some history on Well Street in Hockley at Birmingham in the County of Warwickshire
More information on Well Street to follow. I probably created the page as I had a link to Well Street from another page. When building the site it is easier to place links as they crop up rather than go back later on. I realise this is frustrating if you were specifically looking for information on Well Street. There is information on Birmingham dotted around the website - click here for a suitable starting place.
"Driver J. Collard, of the R.F.A., who has been awarded the Distinguished Conduct Medal, is a Birmingham man, whose home is at 154
Well Street, Hockley. He is an old soldier, who has seen service in India and South Africa, and is the possessor of the Mahmund Expeditionary Medal, 1908, and
the Queen's South African Medal. He went out to France with the Expeditionary Force in August 1914, and took part in the famous retreat from Mons. He has
seen a great deal of fighting since, and the award was made for conspicuous gallantry in the field. Driver Collard is married, and has one child."
