Astoness, congratulations on your success in finding a home for the plaque. I echo your sentiments 100 percent. If more people cared the way you do the world would be a far better place.

quick update...very happy to say that the postal plaque will be going to the royal memorial arburetum in alrewas..erdington SO was an option but planning permission would have to be applied for and we cant say for certain granted and we dont have the time to wait if its to be sorted out before the centenary of the outbreak of the great war...the plaque will be collected by the royal mail from me.. cleaned up and a nice wooden one made to go in front of it saying where the postmen came from...then followed by a proper re dedication service with hopefully some rellies of at least 2 of the men in attendance as the family of cornelius neal and albert edward sharp have contacted me...a good result all round and now ensures that these 7 brave men will never be forgotton...

Great News. Well done. It is a pity that planning permission has got in the way of it staying in Erdington, but the memorial site is just as fitting.

thanks cleo..yes the dreaded planning permission but on reflection who is to say the sorting office at erdington will not close at any time..we could lose the plaque again and then there is the chance of vandalism..at least this way the men will be in the royal mail section at alrewas where it will be very safe indeed..will keep you all updated with progress...

My wife Jo was telling Barbara (the Chair of the Birmingham Air Raids association) about the the plaque a couple of nights ago, she said that she thought it should have gone to The Peace garden, that would have been another good place, too late now obviously.
