Church Road
The Church Road drill hall of 'H' company 8th Bn Worcs is long demolished. However, an inspirational move led to the inclusion of the rescued regimental insignia into the wall of the building that now stands on the site. 'H' Company, formerly 'H' company 2 VB, originally occupied premises described as 'armoury and drill room, Ipsley street,' and Kelly 1900 notes the 'armoury & drill room, Red Lion st.'

Easemore Road
The Easemore Road premises of the 3rd Worcs Battery 2nd South Midland Bde RFA are now known as Community House. The painted frontage with its hanging baskets disguises its military past, which provided a training centre for what became 241 Brigade RFA. They formed part of the 48th South Midland Division.
