Walsall Street

D Coy 3rd Volunteer Battalion

Willenhall did not have a drill hall until 1924 - the Walsall Street drill hall was opened on the 22nd March by Col J V Campbell. It was built at a cost of approx 2,250. Prior to this, D Coy used the Chamberlain Hall Club in Market Place.

Curiously, Kelly, 1904, refers to D Co. 3rd Volunteer Battalion at the 'Drill hall, 3 Bilston street' , Kelly 1912 referring to the 'Drill hall, Market place'
