      I have lived on Penn Common for some 36 years and there are a couple of items still visible in this area from the HG time. Sadly one man who could have given lots of info died last year and he had been in it and then became a Police officer for many years. I suggest you contact a very knowledgeable historian who now lives in Wales but has written many books on this area. (his former Home area)
      Try angusdunphy@yahoo.co.uk but be sure to put in the title section the name Penn Common so it will not go into spam tray.

      several years but I've finally pinpointed the location of the photo, and it isn't in Penn at all!

      It was taken at the work's entrance of the Henry Meadows factory, Cannock Road, Fallings Park, Wolverhampton.

      I'm now pretty sure that Grandad, who worked at the factory, was in the work's Home Guard, not the Penn HG.
