Today we found more men who had been trained at Coleshill and this info will be added to the site soon.

We also learnt that up to 5,000 men were trained there and not the 3,500 we had thought.

We also designed our new web banners. Please see below and add them on as many websites as possible.

We have more plans in the pipeline for events connected to Coleshill so stay tuned.
