Untold pressures were placed on the police service during World War 2. With hundreds of their experienced officers leaving to join the forces, they had to recruit additional special constables and auxiliaries including the First Police reserve, Police War Reserve, the Police Auxiliary Messengers and the Women’s Auxiliary Police Corps.
Through this book we are proud to tell the stories of those who risked their lives protecting the people and properties of Birmingham, and those from the Birmingham City Police who made the ultimate sacrifice.
The West Midlands Police Museum is fortunate to have comprehensive archives of police personnel records and photographs, which have allowed us to bring the stories of the Second World War to life and ensure the heroes of the Birmingham Police are recognised and never forgotten.
